During this lockdown period I am sharing a new series with you all – Ten Minute Treasures with Old Father Thames.
In each episode I’ll share a very special mudlarking find along with a bitesize history lesson. This week we are looking at my commemorative cufflink featuring the bust of Maria Theresa, Holy Roman Empress, which I found on the tidal River Thames foreshore in 2017.
So, strap in and get some fast history!
