London in Fragments : A Mudlark's Treasures Hardback
'A beautiful book...the words Sandling unearths are as delightful as the objects he describes.' Daily Mail Mudlarking, searching the Thames foreshore, has a long tradition: mudlarks used to be small boys grubbing a living from scrap.
Today's mudlarks unearth relics of the past, from Roman tiles to elegant Georgian pottery.
Here are Ted Sandling's most evocative finds, gorgeously photographed.
Together they create a mosaic of everyday London life through the centuries, touching on the journeys, pleasures, vices, industries, adornments and comforts of a world city.
London in Fragments celebrates the beauty of small things, and makes sense of the intangible connection that found objects give us to the individuals who lost them.
