Event description
Try your hand at archaeology! Discover foreshore finds from the river Thames and learn about mudlarking with the friendly Museum team.

About this event

Sift through a sandpit and discover real foreshore finds!

Led by our Museum expert, Vicky, children and accompanying adults will have opportunity to handle intriguing museum objects found nearby in the river Thames and try out their archaeological skills. Also see related river-finds from the Museum's own collection - including coins, a mace head; even a fossilised mammoth’s tooth - and learn about their fascinating history with our Curator, Laura.

A family-friendly activity suitable for all ages. When booking, please book places for accompanying adults and children (including under 5s) so we can keep a track of numbers.
