Thames foreshore walks: Roman and English Delftware

Our next walks focus on Roman London and the English Delftware Potters.

Led by Clayground Associate and Thames archaeologist, Mike Webber, the walks illuminate wider historical context in the cityscape before going down on the beach to look for ceramic fragments and further clues to the history of ceramics and London.

The cost is £25 per person.  There are two discounted places per walk for children/young people between 8-18.

For more details and to book, please go to the relevant Eventbrite links as follows:

Largely located along the South Bank of the Thames these potteries produced their distinctive wares between 16th – 18th centuries and were significant in the early industrial development of London.
