Mudlarking, searching the Thames foreshore, has a long tradition: mudlarks used to be small boys grubbing a living from scrap. Today’s mudlarks unearth relics of the past, from Roman tiles to elegant Georgian pottery.
An evocative and detailed text will place the fragments in the objects they came from, and place the objects in the flow of London’s history. The book concludes with advice on how to start mudlarking.
