Lizzy spent a sweltering few hours on the Tower of London foreshore today researching archeology with The Thames Discovery Programme. This part of the foreshore isn’t open to the public, and isn’t often revealed by a low tide, so it felt very special to make it down the steps to see what we could find.  At the end of an hour or so, we all laid our treasure on the sand to see what we had, for inspection by an archeologist from MOLA.My personal highlights were the animal teeth and a lot of pottery, some of which came from medieval times, there were also some wonderful decorative clay pipes.  Mudlarking with 20 people at once was pretty useful, because 40 pairs of beady eyes made for a really nice overview of the treasure to be found on the Tower beach.
