The groundbreaking charity that combines world-class archaeology with veteran care and recovery.

Our Story

Since 2015, we have been taking veterans and serving personnel to the battlefield of Waterloo to undertake a programme of archaeology and welfare support, focussing on the five pillars of Recovery, Wellbeing, Transition into Civilian Life, Education and Employment.

In 2021, we are running four online veteran support programmes supporting more than 50 veterans: the Virtual Veterans' Programme, Finds Programme, Creative Arts Programme, and Battlefields Uncovered course. Find out more about our programmes here.

“Waterloo Uncovered taught me so much about myself and about what career I wanted. It showed me the way ahead. It showed me a passion I enjoyed and wanted to develop. It inspired me to learn more and to take the next step, it improved my happiness, my ambition, my zest for life – it changed me for the better in so many ways.”
