Ten Minute Treasures No. 3: Maria Theresa Cufflink

LEARN ABOUT MARIA THERESA HOLY ROMAN EMPRESS!

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!
