From relics of Georgian empire-building and slave-trading, through Victorian London's barged-out refuse to 1980s fly-tipping and the pervasiveness of present-day plastics, Rag and Bone traces the story of our rubbish, and through it, our history of consumption. Grounded in a series of beachcombing and mudlarking walks from the Thames to Kent to Cornwall, this mixture of social history, family memoir and nature writing asks what we can learn from what we've thrown away - and calls on us to think about what we will leave behind.
