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. Join mudlarks Nick Stevens and Jason Sandy as they share some of the fascinating backstories behind the incredible artefacts they have recovered from the River Thames.
Nick and Jason have discovered and recovered many historically significant artefacts – including gold and other metal items. Their finds have featured in books, magazines, newspapers and on television. Some are 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 River Thames. A range of their finds will be displayed at this event.
