Come and join us at this talk and hear about the disappearing archaeology on the Thames foreshore in London.

Running through the heart of London is a mighty river: the Thames. It has played a central role in the history of the city, and when the tide is low, the capital’s longest archaeological site is revealed. However, many of the exposed archaeological sites are often unrecognised and unprotected, and almost all are vulnerable.

The Thames Discovery Programme is a community archaeology project which has been training volunteers across London to monitor and record archaeological features found on the Thames at low tide. Helen Johnston, Community Archaeologist, will share some of the fascinating sites the project has worked on, recording archaeology before it is lost.
