Waterloo, Belgium. 2022. The face of a lost soldier, buried for 200 years, sees the light of day once again - unearthed by his fellow soldiers, far in the future. He is only the second skeleton from the Battle of Waterloo to be discovered on the battlefield; a significant archaeological discovery. Around him are the skeletons of horses, countless musket balls, and amputated human limbs: the evidence of one of the bloodiest and most famous land battles in history.
'Leave No One Behind' explores these discoveries, and the lives and traumas of the modern day soldiers who made them while searching for peace from war on a historical battlefield.

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.
