From the London Mudlark comes one of the season's most-anticipated non-fiction titles: a captivating and revelatory history of London and its people, told through objects found along the banks of the River Thames.

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 over fifteen years, in pursuit of the objects that the river unearths: from Neolithic flints to Roman hair pins, medieval buckles to Tudor buttons, Georgian clay pipes to Victorian toys. These objects tell her about London and its lost ways of life. Moving from the river's tidal origins in the west of the city to the point where it meets the sea in the east, Mudlarking is a search for urban solitude and history on the River Thames, which Lara calls the longest archaeological site in England. As she has discovered, it is often the tiniest objects that tell the greatest stories.

'[An] enthralling and evocative history of London and its people.'
The Bookseller

'Lara Maiklem reveals to us the fascinating and poignant micro-world of London's history; the fragments of life deposited on the tidal shores of the Thames. Mudlarking is a flowing river of human stories; beautiful, wondrous and eternal.'
Hallie Rubenhold

'Driven by curiosity, freighted with mystery and tempered by chance, wonders gleam from every page.'
Melissa Harrison
