Thames Treasures & History beachcombing walk - 1 June

  • This location is shown only to members

10,000 Years of History Beneath Your Feet!

Join us for this exciting walk along the foreshore at low tide in Central London, find unexpected treasures and hear some of the fascinating history of the tidal Thames.

The walk will be guided by a true expert - Dr Fiona Haughey, an Archaeologist & Archaeological Illustrator and Director of the Archaeology on the Thames Project, as well as the author of “Neolithic Archaeology in the Intertidal Zone”

Bring a little bag for the goodies you're going to find: medieval roof tiles, Elizabethan clay pipes, something Roman perhaps, or even Mesolithic! You may only pick up what you can see lying there, and any items of significant archaeological interest must be reported to the Museum of London.

Please wear sensible shoes – like walking/hiking shoes or trainers. No sandals! We will not be much mud where we’re walking, but the Thames foreshore is filled with glass/metals and uneven surfaces and so you do need to wear something that covers and protects your foot.

Meetup date: Sunday 1 June 2014

Meetup time: 9.45am for 10am start

Meetup place: outside Mansion House tube station, exit 1 

Note: Mansion House station is closed that day, but we will still meet outside the station. The closest tube stations are St Paul's or Bank, both some 10 mins walk from Mansion House station.

Meetup cost: £10 (inc PayPal fee)
