1A person who scavenges in river mud for objects of value.
- The mudlarks and the River Police are thorough, unlike some.
- The floating fire was removed and a peasant mudlark called Osric was sent in to delve down in the nice warm water to see if there was anything left of the pots or just a soggy mass of clay in the bottom.
- Unlike the street-sellers, whose lives were solitary, the mudlarks formed organised communities.
