Thames Foreshore Visit - Bankside

  • Aug 11, 2013 · 10:45 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

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 Sunday 11th August 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 -



 

 

 

 

 

 


Hope to see you there!

    A great morning and thank you Robert for organising. I made a few good finds which the guide was able to identify so easily. I've taken some treasures home and its really sparked my interest. Some very good company too. I love the eclectic mix of people. Thanks everyone.

    Despite having to move to a different location, (then having to ride my bike like I'd stolen it to catch up!!) another good foreshore trip with the usual good company - some I'm familiar with others met for the first time. I also had a couple of good finds to put in my own "Archaeological Archive".

    A big thank you to the person who could not make it therefore allowing me to attend after all. I've heard such good things about this event. However, I wouldn't have made it myself at such short notice. Hopefully, someone was able to squeeze in instead!

    August 10, 2013

  • Dan

    Yes- see you there

    I'm really disappointed (yet again) but I've got family staying this weekend so I can't make it. Please keep me on the waiting list for next time. Have a great time folks and happy hunting!

    Hi, as I've been taken off the canal boat trip in the afternoon it will be impractical for me to come in from Essex. I'm my mum's carer so my days off have to be organised and are likely to change at the last minute if my cover lets me down.

    Have fun. x

    Yay! Looking forward to it! <3
