A time-honored tradition in England's capital, mudlarking is the act of searching the Thames shore for items of value. In the late 18th and 19th centuries, mudlarks were small boys grubbing a living from scrap; today they are more likely to be armchair historians. From Roman tiles to elegant Georgian pottery, Ted Sandling presents his most evocative finds, gorgeously photographed and described. Together they create a mosaic of everyday London life through the centuries, touching on the vices, industries, adornments, and comforts of the city.
