Since 2015 – with your help – we have been uncovering the archaeological secrets of Waterloo while helping veterans and serving personnel recover from the traumas of war.

To date, we've discovered over 7000 archaeological finds and supported more than 350 veterans from the UK, Netherlands, Ukraine, Belgium and beyond.

There is still plenty more work to be done - and we can't do it without your support.
