Foragers of the Foreshore
Wed 25 - Sun 29 Sep, 11am - 6pmPast event
For over 2,000 years, the River Thames has been a repository of lost objects which have been accidentally dropped or purposely discarded in its waters. Mudlarks Nick Stevens and Jason Sandy have discovered and recovered many historically significant artefacts which have been featured in books, magazines, newspapers and on television. Some of their finds are even on permanent display in museums. Each object reveals a unique and different story about London’s illustrious, rich history.
Nick and Jason are members of exclusive Society of Thames Mudlarks and are Trustees of the Thames Museum Trust. Over the past few years, Nick and Jason have published monthly feature articles for various magazines in the UK and USA, documenting the extraordinary artefacts discovered by mudlarks in the Thames. Join Jason and Nick upstairs at the Bargehouse, where they will share some of the fascinating backstories behind the incredible artefacts they have recovered from the River Thames.
