Prepare for Mudlarking

It's going to happen, oh yes, it's going to happen. When the tide is low, when Mars and Jupiter align, we are going to venture out onto the mud of the Thames in search of ancient treasures (either that or syringes).

Gerrod and I went out and bought some gum boots the other day in preparation. We will probably also need some impenetrable gloves and a kitchen sieve (I'm hoping it's going to be like panning for gold).

We've got some prime loctions in mind: Deptford, Cannon St, Greenwich, and maybe even Putney. We haven't decided what day we'll do it yet (we have to go at low tide), but we'll certainly be posting our finds when we do. It's bound to be spectacular.

You know who'd LOVE mudlarking? Aaron.

Mark my words.

I suspect your boots are about 1cm too short though.
