Sandling’s book, (right) London in Fragments charts more than 100 evocative finds, with his beautiful images throughout. They create a mosaic of everyday city life through the centuries. These finds led to discoveries and stories that reveal London’s wide history – from wig curlers and oyster shells to elegant Georgian pottery. A shard of porcelain may take us to the Far East trade routes; a fragment of an 18th century glass bottle to Hogarth’s Gin Lane.
