Illustrated with 160 photographs of the intriguing objects discovered by over 50 ‘mudlarks’, this fascinating little book tells the story of London and its inhabitants through the extraordinary assortment of artefacts discovered at low tide along the banks of the River Thames – in effect, the longest archaeological site in Britain. The uncovered treasures range from megalodon teeth, Celtic coins and Roman jewellery to Georgian shoe buckles, Venetian glass beads and shrapnel from the Blitz.
