Delving deep with Mudlarker -Lara Maiklem
This week we had the pleasure of chatting to Author and Mudlark : Lara Maiklem.
If you would like to hear more from her; she has some superb books:
Mudlarking: Lost and Found on the River Thames (Bloomsbury, 2019)
A Field Guide to Larking: Beachcombing, Mudlarking, Fieldwalking and More (Bloomsbury, 2021)
Download this weeks episode to hear about the skull Lara found whilst mudlarking. He's been named 'Fred' and is believed to have lived during the 17th/18th century.
Now remember folks; if you would like to become a mudlarker, you need a license
(pla.co.uk) and if you do start digging into London's riverbed you might find a clay pipe or two. You can learn more about them on this weeks episode.
