I finally found a Medieval coin weight!
Find it with me in this on-the-foreshore, down and dirty London mudlarking adventure. Sift through the silt, sand and mud to find dress accessories, hundreds of years old pottery, and a lovely, leaden token.
So, if you’re stuck at home or too far from the foreshore to get down there yourself, join me for a virtual treasure hunt.
