Mudlarking : The Sunday Times Bestseller
by Lara Maiklem (Author)

'Fascinating. Mudlarks are river scavengers, but Lara Maiklem is more like a time traveller' Guardian

Mudlark (/'mAdla;k/) noun A person who scavenges for usable debris in the mud of a river or harbour. Lara Maiklem has scoured the banks of the Thames for nearly twenty years, in pursuit of the objects the river unearths: from Neolithic flints to Roman hairpins, medieval buckles to Tudor buttons, Georgian clay pipes to Victorian toys. What began as a search for solitude came to reveal the story of a city, its people and their lost ways of life.

*The No. 2 Sunday Times bestseller and the BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week, now with full colour images*

'Enchanting... I am quite tempted to join Maiklem on the riverbed looking for treasure' Sunday Times

'Reveals to us the fascinating and poignant micro-world of London's history' Hallie Rubenhold, Baillie Gifford Prize-winning author of The Five

'No one has looked at these odd corners since Sherlock Holmes' Sunday Telegraph

'A quirky and delightful read, wonderfully evocative of London's gloopy, ghost-haunted river' Daily Mail
