As part of an exciting programme of online events and talks from the National Army Museum, Waterloo Uncovered Archaeological Director Tony Pollard and CEO Mark Evans will be in conversation with Dr Peter Johnston, describing our work across the battlefield of Waterloo at Hougoumont, Mont-Saint-Jean and Frischermont.
The National Army Museum is in possession of an incredible collection of artefacts related to the Battle of Waterloo, including a captured French eagle standard, weapons and uniforms from both sides, Siborne’s model of the battle and a number of evocative paintings. Our excavations and archaeological discoveries in Belgium over the last 5 years allow us to provide valuable insight into their collection. In this exclusive event, Tony and Mark will be discussing the most exciting finds and revelations from our work on the battlefield, as well as explaining the impact Waterloo Uncovered has had on its veteran participants.
The event, which will be held on Friday June 12th at 12:00pm, will be livestreamed and is free to attend virtually. Register now via Crowdcast to book your place: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/waterloouncovered/register
