Price: Free

Join our Thames Discovery Team in this free event, generously supported by Tideway and City Bridge Trust.

In this workshop you’ll learn from our Senior Archaeozoologist Alan Pipe, how to identify which animal bones you find on the Thames foreshore might have come from. You’ll find out which bones are likely to be preserved and which are not. You'll also be able to get hands-on with examples of animal bone, to test your new-found knowledge.

The workshop will begin at 11:20 with registration from 11am.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided but you will need to bring a packed lunch, alternatively there are several shops and cafes nearby.
