As we can’t get out on to the foreshore at the moment, we’re sharing some of our #ForeshoreFavourites on our Facebook and Twitter accounts. We’ll do a regular FROG blog round up to, as an archive and for those of you not on social media. Here’s our posts from the 11 – 17 April 2020

LAMAS Publications available online

Many London & Middlesex Archaeological Society (LAMAS) publications are free to download from their website, and lots are interesting if you’re a fan of foreshore archaeology.

We particularly recommend Gustav and Chrissie Milne’s “Medieval waterfront development at Trig Lane, London” about excavations at Trig Lane in the 1970s (on the north bank of the City, where the Millennium Bridge is now)

Visit the virtual foreshore


In 2018 we worked with Dr Pablo Rodríguez-Navarro from Univesitat Politècnica de València to create 3D-models of some of the more inaccessible and hard-to-record foreshore features we’ve been monitoring. You can see the results in this blog from Museum of London Archaeology

Fantastic Prehistoric finds at Chelsea

In January 2019, we made a fantastic discovery of a prehistoric antler axe at Chelsea. Read more in our FROG Blog

Walking the foreshore

In September 2018, writer and musician, Tracey Thorn, joined us on on of our regular Thames foreshore walks, and wrote this wonderful evocative column about it. We miss the foreshore, but we will be back!

Anchors Aweigh!


Anchors are a common sight on the Thames foreshore, often reused as mooring features for boats and buoys. We love the Nautical Archaeology Society’s Big Anchor Project a database of anchors from around the world. We’ve added several foreshore anchors!
