Running through the heart of London; the Thames has played a central role in the history of the city, and when the tide is low, the capital’s longest archaeological site is revealed.
Come along on Friday 22nd November to explore 10,000 years of London’s dynamic history...
Guided by Nathalie Cohen, an archaeologist from the Museum of London, we will be going down to the Thames foreshore at low tide on the foreshore at Bankside, where we will have about 1h 30mins to have a look around for objects before the tide comes in.
Any objects you find you can keep (apart from if you find any gold or silver objects which you have to hand in) and Nathalie will be on hand to identify and date objects. Most objects you can spot sitting on the foreshore after being washed in on the tide or by kicking back a few stones with your feet (examples below of items that were found at previous foreshore trips we have done).
Due to Health & Safety, we are limited to 25 people. The foreshore is very stoney, so please wear sensible shoes (preferably walking boots/wellington boots).
Cost is £7 per person for Full Members, £8 for everyone else. Plastic gloves will be provided.
Afterwards we will head to a local coffee shop for a hot drink and a chat.
If you can't see us outside the station, please call or text.
Look out for the group sign -
