Experience: I mudlarked a skull

Today 08:04 GMT

It wasn’t until I picked it up, turned it around, and could see where eyebrows would have been that I realised I might be holding part of a skull.

I’m told that only a handful of Neolithic skull remains have been found in London; it’s particularly rare to find one on the foreshore. Although I am the finder, in the eyes of the law the Crown Estate are the owners as it was found on their land.
