Kent-based Lara Maiklem’s search for urban solitude and history on the River Thames, what she calls ‘the longest archaeological landscape in the world’. Known as the ‘London Mudlark’, Lara has been larking along the Thames for over 15 years, unearthing finds from Neolithic, Roman, medieval and Victorian eras that tell her about London and its lost ways of life. Host: Julia Wheeler.
Lara Maiklem moved from her family's farm to London in the 1990s and has been mudlarking along the River Thames for fifteen years. She now lives with her family on the Kent coast within easy reach of the river, which she visits as regularly as the tides permit. This is her first book.
