Mud Men – Series 2

Published: 8 years ago Author:

Steve at workMud Men, Johnny Vaughan and (self-styled ‘Mud God’) Steve Brooker (not to be confused with the Canadian Rock Band of the same name!), are back on TV as from 26 January 2012 and off on more historical adventures, mudlarking along the banks of the Thames, and beyond (Folkestone, Portsmouth, ...and Poland) - not for buried treasure but hidden history which could change our understanding of the past...

Both Johnny and Steve have Port of London foreshore permits which allow them to search along the River Thames and recover archaeological material. The permit also requires that all finds are offered for recording with the Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS). In this series Dr Michael Lewis is the ‘archaeological expert’ that verifies their finds, but sometimes Michael and Steve disagree on what has been found – watch the series and find out who is right...

Mud Men (series 1) was HISTORY's highest rating UK commission and commended as ‘Best Popular Factual Programme' at the Broadcast Digital Awards in May 2011.
