"Thames smells authentically of the water, of an author who has walked the towpath and knows not only the impressive statistics but also the Turner water-colours of the Thames itself. It is not just the subject that sets this book apart but also the compelling new perspectives that [Ackroyd] brings." —The TimesCited by: 5.

The Thames displays the same qualities as London: The Biography: scholarship, wit, discursiveness, lovely descriptive writing, anecdotes, spirit of place The Thames book is hugely enjoyable and sure to be another mammoth bestseller.

The Thames is about the river from source to sea, from prehistoric times to the present, its flora and fauna, the paintings and photographs inspired by the Thames /5(46). Book Reviewed on Arrowood and the Thames Corpses is the third book in the Arrowood series and the second I have read.

This is a book of surprising value and lasting worth. So wonderfully crafted and written, it covers the range of this peculiar pastime along the Thames from West to East/5(). Her first book, Mudlarking, charts the thousands of years people have been living by the Thames, or on the islands – many now vanished – along its meandering : Richard Lea.

• Mudlarking: Lost and Found on the River Thames is published by Bloomsbury (£). To order a copy go to or call. Walking season is upon us, and there are few finer treks than a stroll along the Thames.

Here are ten of our favourite books about London's river, taking in both fiction and non-fiction. Very interesting and well written book about the history of a house and the area on the south bank of the Thames opposite St Paul's.

I would have liked a few more pictures of the house today but appreciate it is in private hands and may not have been possible/5. The Halls' Book of the Thames is a gentle ramble through the geography and history of the Thames from its rise in a meadow by Trewsbury Mead through to the sea.

The book is illustrated throughout with numerous drawings within the text. Condition: An attractive copy but with some heavy wear. The gilt design is quite crisp with some surface loss. Oh, and there was another reason to come to this part of the river: my mum lives just up from Benson, in Dorchester-on-Thames.

We had a picnic in. This book sheds light on what until now has been an almost unknown but important aspect of London’s survival during the Second World War.

It explains the vital work of the Thames-Flood unit, adding archaeological evidence to earlier records held at the London Metropolitan ed on: Ma   The book does come with three excellent opening maps of the Thames valley, demonstrating the wide variety of geographical forms that the river and its tributaries take from source to sea.

But Ackroyd makes no use of these: the map makes manifest far more clearly the different drainage patterns above and below the Goring gap than the author's Reviews: Sadly, this book was a real disappointment. There are the bones of a good book in it: some very interesting anecdotes; and an interesting central idea, the history of the Thames, as the history of England.

However, the book is poorly structured, the authors ideas are never developed, so at the end one is left very dissatisfied/5. "Mudlarks" were the people who made a living picking objects out of the mud along the River Thames.

Displaying the same qualities as London: The Biography — scholarship, wit, anecdotes, spirit of place, narrative and character — this hugely enjoyable book will be another mammoth bestseller.

The Thames is now one of the cleanest metropolitan rivers in the world, but it used to be regarded as London's trash can. Thames mud is anaerobic (without oxygen) and preserves whatever it consumes, which makes the mile foreshore (the part of the shore closest to the water) of the tidal Thames one of the richest archaeological sites in Britain.The Thames River Murders was a nice read and solid mystery, although I was so sick of reading about the preparations for Gabriella's, Lacey's teenaged daughter from his first marriage, coming out for the season that I found myself scrolling through all scenes focusing on that nonsense/5.

The Thames is central to British history, but there is no other book like this on the subject. The Thames is clear, compelling, and frequently lyrical."—James Cronin, Boston University “Beautifully written, wide-ranging and rich in anecdote, Schneer’s history of the nation’s most famous river flows effortlessly, merging its waters with.
