LONDON IN FRAGMENTS
Mudlarking enthusiast Ted Sandling takes us on a riveting journey along the Thames foreshore and back into the past. In the late 18th and 19th centuries, mudlarks were small boys grubbing a living from scrap. Modern-day mudlark Ted Sandling shares his passion for unearthing relics of the past from the banks of the Thames and describes his most evocative finds. From Roman tiles to elegant Georgian pottery, these objects create a mosaic of everyday London life through the centuries. This talk celebrates the beauty of small things, and the intangible connection that found objects give us to the past.
