Monday 21 September:  Beneath the Water and the Mud

Dr Fiona Haughey will talk about structures and artefacts dating back over many thousands of years which have been uncovered along the Lambeth foreshore of the Thames.  Come and discover some of Lambeth’s heritage found beneath the water and mud. This talk is part of Lambeth Heritage Festival:  for the full month-long programme go to the library or to http://www.lambeth.gov.uk/leisure-parks-and-libraries/libraries/lambeth-heritage-festival-2015 .

Why not join her on the walk above at the beginning of September – date chosen because of the tides.

Do bring your £3.00 subscription as well as your usual £2.00 donation.
