When the tide is out, the Thames is the longest open-air archaeological site in London, and much of the foreshore is freely accessible to the public. However, many of the exposed archaeological sites are often unrecognised and unprotected, and almost all are vulnerable to the twice-daily scouring of the tidal river, and thus require close monitoring. The Thames Discovery Programme aims to communicate an understanding and informed enjoyment of the historic Thames to the widest possible audience.
Over the last 15 years Nathalie has worked on a number of different archaeological projects both at home and in Israel, the Czech Republic and Romania. Nathalie is an Honorary Research Associate at UCL, the Cathedral Archaeologist at Southwark Cathedral and also works for the Thames Discovery Programme and for the National Trust as the regional Archaeologist for Kent and East Sussex.
