Mudlarking: Lost and Found on the River Thames
Mudlark (/'mAdla;k/) noun A person who scavenges for usable debris in the mud of a river or harbour.
Lara Maiklem has scoured the banks of the Thames for nearly twenty years, in pursuit of the objects the river unearths: from Neolithic flints to Roman hairpins, medieval buckles to Tudor buttons, Georgian clay pipes to Victorian toys. What began as a search for solitude came to reveal the story of a city, its people and their lost ways of life.
Fascinating. Mudlarks are seen as river scavengers, but Lara Maiklem is more like a time traveller' Guardian
