'Fascinating. Mudlarks are river scavengers, but Lara Maiklem is more like a time traveller' Guardian

Mudlark (/'mAdla;k/) noun   A person who scavenges for usable debris in the mud of a river or harbour. Lara Maiklem has scoured the banks of the Thames for nearly twenty years, in pursuit of the objects the river unearths: from Neolithic flints to Roman hairpins, medieval buckles to Tudor buttons, Georgian clay pipes to Victorian toys. What began as a search for solitude came to reveal the story of a city, its people and their lost ways of life.

'Enchanting . .. I am quite tempted to join Maiklem on the riverbed looking for treasure' Sunday Times

'No one has looked at these odd corners since Sherlock Holmes' Sunday Telegraph

'A quirky and delightful read, wonderfully evocative of London's gloopy, ghost-haunted river' Daily Mail
