Featuring exclusive access, riveting stories, surprising revelations, and jaw-dropping hammer prices, Secret Life of the Auction House goes behind the scenes at one of Britain’s busiest auction houses—to capture all the drama, passion, and charisma as antiques specialist Charles Hanson and a small army of experts examine, appraise, strategize, and sell to the highest bidder—all while making historic discoveries and keeping an eye out for fakes.

Every treasure has a unique story to tell. And with hundreds of thousands of objects coming through the door every year, Charles and the team bring long-forgotten relics, cherished heirlooms, attic discoveries, and metal detector finds to life
