Firing on the Foreshore

Day 4 of our festive flashback and we're firing on the foreshore just like our ancestors did along the River Thames...

Our much-treasured annual event in the Totally Thames calendar, Firing on the Foreshore recreates the way pottery was produced in 4,000 BC in open fires along the Thames foreshore.

Pots are created using Thames clay and then fired on the foreshore at Bankside in a fire made from Thames driftwood that is extinguished by the incoming tide. We hope you can join us next year for this unique and informative event that explores London’s historic foreshore, it's treasures and with archaeologist Dr Fiona Haughey on hand to take any questions, you will come away with some fascinating facts.
