Thames Foreshore Visit - Cannon Street - NOW CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER

  • Dec 6, 2013 · 9:15 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 Friday 6th December 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 Cannon Street, 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 above 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!

    I'll have to drop out of this, unfortunately. Came down with rotten cold and bug so will have to catch up on all the things I've missed this week sometime in the future. Hope to make the play on Saturday.

    I'd love to do this trip but can't make a Thursday or Friday. Let me know if you do it again.

    As my current job will end on 29th November & I don't yet have a new one, I'm going to jump at the chance to come along... also, I know how popular these trips are & how interesting & well worth joining they are - so if I do manage to secure a new job in the meantime, I know somebody will be happy to take my place!
