Working in partnership with some of Europe’s top universities, and through the unique perspective of a team comprised of archaeologists, veterans, and serving soldiers, Waterloo Uncovered aims to understand war and its impact on people — and to educate the public about it.

Our Impact

As part of our mission to uncover the secrets of the battlefields of Waterloo, we’ve discovered over 6000 objects so far, from cannon balls to bombs to human remains. Explore more of our 2019 in our Impact Report.


We would like to thank the wide range of organisations, trusts, businesses, groups and individuals who have supported Waterloo Uncovered over the years. Our work would not be possible without their involvement, encouragement and generosity.
