Absolutely thrilled😃to find this flask neck of marbled north italian slipware from late 16th or early 17th century. Its from a costrel or pilgrims bottle and was probably manafactured in Pisa. Swipe for stills.Thanks😍 @thames_pottery for i.d #mudlark #mudlarking #slipware #pottery #thameshistory #londonhistory #kayakmudlark #archeology #riverthamesmudlark #kayakmudlarker #riverthames #pirate #riverthamesfinds

The Badger (my OH) has gifted me a 'new' tool. It's working it's charm getting rid of the Thames crud on some of my pre lockdown finds.... . . . #collectprotectcurate #mudlarking #riverthamesfinds #intertidalarchaeology #urbanarchaeology #forgottenthingfinder #licensedmudlark

I THINK this is a Medieval cistern bunghole but wonder if it is equally the base of a sugar cone mould or oil jar rim. Does anyone know any obvious features that would suggest it is one of these? #mudlarking #mudlarkingfinds #mudlarkinglondon #mudlarkingthames #thamesforeshore #thamesfinds #forshorefinds #riverthamesfinds

Proud of..... #marchmeetthemaker . I'm proud of a lot of things, sometimes it's the smallest stuff that makes me grin like a Cheshire Cat! It's usually something that nobody else notices but I know that it worked perfectly or that I was absolutely petrified but still did it. Most of the time I keep it to myself, I'm not really any good at the self promotion side of things. My OH (the Badger) constantly goes on at me to be more vocal about the bigger 'wins' and I do try but I always feel odd & a little boastful when I mention something. Anyhoo, what am I proud of right now? Well I'm pretty chuffed at how much I've evolved in the last few years, I'm ecstatically over the moon about what I achieved on my Masters and I'm definitely proud that I haven't just fallen back into my old routine but am continuing with all the reading and researching on the side. Who knows where that adventure may lead! . . . #marchmeetthemaker2020 #collectprotectcurate #thecuriositycupboard #mudlarking #riverthamesfinds #mudlarkingfinds #riverwyefinds #beachcombingfinds #urbanarchaeology #contemporaryarchaeology #intertidalarchaeology #wireandwordtwister #forgottenthingfinder #magicdustcollector #wireworker #creaturemaker

Self care..... #marchmeetthemaker . I'm generally an easy going person, or at least that's what most people think of me, and at times I can even appear to be distant or distracted. It's a coping method that's come from life long anxiety & panic attacks. I'm slowly learning to deal with it in a healthier way by understanding why & what overwhelms me. One thing that has significantly helped has been reconnecting with my passion for finding objects. The fog is now slowly dispersing letting the sunlight break through..... . . . #marchmeetthemaker2020 #selfcare #cptsd #fibromyalgia #collectprotectcurate #mudlarking #riverthamesfinds #mudlarkingfinds #riverwyefinds #beachcombingfinds #urbanarchaeology #contemporaryarchaeology #intertidalarchaeology #forgottenthingfinder

Current project..... #marchmeetthemaker . I feel a bit discombobulated this weekend. I had planned to spend it finishing some creatures for the craft festival in Cheltenham next weekend. The fair has been postponed until August so I've decided to grab the opportunity & spend a few days doing some stuff for me. Today I'm going to finish a sample brooch/pin that I'm making for myself. . Details: reclaimed knitting needle, broken clay pipe piece from the Thames, steel wire, mercerised cotton and ruby bead. . Happy healthy weekend to you all! . . . #marchmeetthemaker2020 #whatsontheworkbench #collectprotectcurate #mudlarking #riverthamesfinds #mudlarkingfinds #riverwyefinds #beachcombingfinds #urbanarchaeology #contemporaryarchaeology #intertidalarchaeology #forgottenthingfinder #wireworker #dorsetwheel

Range..... #marchmeetthemaker . I could have opted to talk about the range of products that I make, or the range of prices, but instead here's a range of materials that I regularly use: Potsherds (broken ceramic pieces), shoe leather, bone, berries, plastic knitting needles, wire, beads, enamelled pennies, clay pipe pieces, rusty bottle tops, vintage thread, lemon peel, avocado stones, old nails, rusty washers, walnut shells, oyster shells, semi precious stones, driftwood, ghost net (the plastic stuff that washes up on the beach), thimbles, flotsam and jetsam. . . . #marchmeetthemaker2020 #collectprotectcurate #mudlarking #riverthamesfinds #mudlarkingfinds #riverwyefinds #beachcombingfinds #urbanarchaeology #contemporaryarchaeology #intertidalarchaeology #forgottenthingfinder

Beautiful little face found in amongst my lead finds, always worth checking your lead before assigning it to the scrap bucket, can't wait to research this. #mudlarkingfinds #thamesriver #thamesmudlarking #riverthamesfinds #mudlarker #thamesforeshore #thameshistory #theriverthamesmudlarkingfinds #thamesmudlarking #riverthameslondon #thamesmudlarkingfinds #thamesriver #thamesmudlarkingtreasures.

Was definately a pins week for me, all that glitters is not gold but I was well chuffed to find them, these brass beauties came out looking so fresh and clean, they looked as though they could of been dropped yesterday, these pins were handmade (often by children) for hundreds of years up until the late 1800s when machinery took over and that's what makes them so special, found a few more lace aglets too which made my week. #thamesforeshore #foreshoreartifacts #thamesriverfinds #thamesforeshorefinds #mudlarkinglondon #mudlarkingtheriverthames #thamesmudlarking #womanmudlark #thamesriver #thamesmudlarkingfinds #riverthamesfinds #pins #archeology #riverthames #mudlarkingfinds #thamespins #thameslondonmudlark #brasspins #antiquepins #dresspins #riverthameslondonmudlarking #lace aglets #brassaglets

The experts tell me this is nutmeg. Used to be carried by gentlemen in the late 17th early 18th century to add to punch. Everyday is a school day. #mudlarker #permitholder #riverthamesfinds

This cloth seal was amongst other finds that I found and posted a couple of days back, I have now done a bit of research on it, it is a post medieval cast cloth seal, double headed eagle with a crown above, the double headed Eagle is a symbol of the Hanseatic Clothworkers Guild, although its use on seals does not imply that this is a continental seal, seals with crowned double headed eagles were found on a shipwreck off the coast of Norway, these were dated from the 1630s-1640s. #clothseals #foreshorefinds #thameslondon #thameshistory #mudlarkingfinds #mudlarkinglondon #archeologylovers #historicthames #mudlarking #thamesmudlarkingfinds #riverthamesfinds #londonhistory #thamesriver #thamesriverfinds #mudlarkingriverthames #thamesforeshorefinds

Gunflints found on the foreshore. A gun flint is a piece of flint or other natural stone shaped into a wedge to fit into a flintlock weapon to generate a spark, the flint was wrapped in leather or lead to hold it in place, the flint differed in shape dependant on the weapon used, William Levett of Northfleet was the principle supplier of gunflints to the Navy board between 1742 - 1781. #archeologylovers #archeology #foreshorefinds #thamesriverfinds #gunflints #mudlarkingfinds #thamesriver #theriverthamesmudlarkingfinds #archeology #thamesmudlarking #riverthamesfinds # mudlarkinglondon #mudlarking #thamesforeshore #thameshistory #mudlarkinglondon #thamesmudlarker #museumoflondon #musket #mudlarker #flints #flintlock #thamesforeshorefinds #flintlocks #flintlockmusket

Think I need to have a good sort out of my finds, just came across mounds of bits and bobs all stashed away waiting many moons for sorting and to be cleaned and researched, among them these buckle partifacts. #buckles #shoebuckles, #beltbuckles #riverthamesfinds #archeology lovers, #riverthames #foreshorefinds #riverthameslondon #foreshore #riverforeshore #archeology #archeologist #theriverthames #mudlarking #mudlarkingfinds #thamesmudlarker #thames #mudlarkinglondon #riverthamesmudlarker

Found on yesterday's low tide, right on the tide line, just as it was turning. Made of bone or ivory. The closest one I can find on the PAS database is anywhere in the 18th century, which fits perfectly with the location I found it. Many thanks to @thames_larker for helping me with dating it also. On the next mega low tide I will return to the same spot to find the other 27 pieces. #Mudlark #mudlarking #thamesmudlarking #domino #thamesfinds #riverthamesfinds #EyesOnlyFinds #gamingpiecefind

Couple of more finds from Wednesdays mudlark in that good old Thames mud. Couple of parts of a Bellarmine jug, cartouche part and half a face of the bearded man. Also a couple of beads from a Roman area of the foreshore although I doubt either are actually Roman. First black one is glass and I'm not sure of the second, could be bone, ivory or probably plastic. Worth posting up incase anyone thinks differently! Happy Friday everyone 🙂 #mudlark #mudlarking #londonmudlark #beachcombing #thamesfinds #riverthamesfinds #EyesOnlyFinds

Day 11 ▪Fancy▪ of @juniperavery 's #beachphotochallenge. Created this fancy copper crown to house all these magnificent finds from around the world that was then gifted to Mary McCarthy @marytmccarthy. One of my favorites is this 17th century Bellarmine shard from Jason Sandy @jasonmudlark that he found mudlarking on the River Thames. It's a one of kind find as each face is unique. The Bellarmine jugs were produced in Germany and exported to England in the 16th and 17th centuries. The 19th century sailors button is cool too. Actually all the finds are epic, but that face is pretty fancy! #fancyfinds #copperheadqueenjewelry
