Rag and Bone: A History of What We've Thrown Away

by Lisa Woollett - £10.99  John Murray Press (2021)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781473663985 | ISBN 10: 1473663989

Lisa Woollett has spent her life combing beaches and mudlarking, collecting curious fragments of the past: from Roman tiles and Tudor thimbles, to Victorian buttons and plastic soldiers.
 
In a series of walks from the Thames, out to the Kentish estuary and eventually to Cornwall, she traces the history of our rubbish and, through it, reveals the surprising story of our changing consumer culture.
 
Timely and beautifully written, Rag and Bone shows what we can learn from what we've thrown away and urges us to think more about what we leave behind.
