Hello Mudlarking Friends, It’s a punisher down on the River Thames Foreshore today! Mud, rain, chilly weather – we’ve got it all.
Join me on a trip through the centuries, from prehistoric fish bones to Roman tiles and 300 hundred year old clay pipes. Let’s go and unlock some liquid history!
Be warned – there’s a bit of swoopy, shaky camera work. Sea sickness sufferers, try your best. And yes, I’ll be getting a new microphone when funds allow.
Remember to check out instagram.com/oldfatherthames, where I add heaps more information about and photos of my finds, including items of historical importance that I have recorded with the PAS at the Museum of London!

With continued thanks to Richard Hemery for the help with identifying pottery pieces and advice on the unusual Roman flue fragment.
His book, Identifying the Pottery of the Thames is available to buy here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PDF-book-I… Now, without further ado, let’s hit the foreshore..
