Mudlarking, Lost and Found on the River Thames

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 29th Feb 2024

 Free

Lara Maiklem is a mudlark. She doesn’t dig or use a metal detector and often walks little more than a mile in 5 hours, yet she can travel 2,000 years back in time through the objects that are revealed by the tide.

Prehistoric flints, medieval pilgrim badges, Georgian wig curlers and Victorian pottery, ordinary objects left behind by the ordinary people who made London what it is today.

From the origins of mudlarking to the windswept marshes of the Estuary, this talk delves into the world of mudlarking, the objects that are found and the the people that search for them.
