Mudlarking the River Thames at Low Tide! Medieval Token, Georgian Stud, Roman Fragments! 03.06.21

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, Medieval, and Georgian artefacts, talk a little on Black Country brickworks, So come along for a search through our liquid history…
