The tide on Sunday was not much to speak of. I went to the river anyway, drawn by the feeling that maybe I would find at least one item I haven't found yet. Probably the dream of all Mudlarkers! Evening came early, and there was a dampness to the air. The tide didn't want to give up any lost treasures openly, and I resorted to a closer inspection of the foreshore. I didn't find much this time out, a scattering of china fragments, a couple of serviceable pipes, another marble, a couple of round objects, maybe cannon shot or musket balls, an old bone handle piece, part of a shoe?, and a few pieces of neat glass. However, I did run into a person of interest, whom is quite famous I would say in the Mudlarking world of London. You can see her blog at London Mudlark. I have corresponded with her over the last few months a few times, asking her advice and using her vast photo collection of Thames finds as a reference to educate myself on what exactly I am collecting. Below is the small, but sort of interesting finds of last weekend.
