Bankside's Rose Playhouse presents an online talk by the bestselling author and mudlark.
Who were the original "mudlarks"? Lara Maiklem is one of the best known among their number today.
What started 20 years ago, as an escape from the chaos of the city, has become an almost obsessive search for hidden history and the objects that forgotten Londoners lost or threw away. Everything has a tale to tell and, as she says, "it is often the tiniest objects that tell the greatest stories".
This talk will focus on the Thames at Bankside and the objects she has found, dating from the 16th and early 17th centuries.
