Mudlarking the River Thames at Low Tide! British Railways, Roman, Post Med Tiles, Gresham Club 21.06.21

Join me on the River Thames foreshore, London, Great Britain, at low tide. Search for historic finds and experience the riverbed uncovered. I show how fragments of social history unlock doors to learning more about the way we lived. This week I find Roman, 17th Century and Victorian artefacts, talk a little more about Pantiles with maker’s marks. So, come along for a search through our liquid history…
