About this lecture series
Due to the coronavirus crisis, we have been unable to travel to Belgium for our annual excavation this year. As a result, Waterloo Uncovered has had to adapt our programme of education and support for veterans – so we’ve gone virtual!
An international team of expert battlefield archaeologists have collaborated to produce a new series known as the Lockdown Lectures – and we're now making them available to our supporters across our website and YouTube channel.
Every week, we’ll bring you a new Lockdown Lecture from archaeologists and academics such as Time Team’s Phil Harding and WU’s archaeological directors Professor Tony Pollard and Dr Stuart Eve, alongside a range of special guests.
A wide variety of topics will be covered over the coming weeks; including an introduction to the Battle of Waterloo, a beginners guide to excavation, how we can integrate cutting edge technology into archaeology, and how Phil Harding’s passion for the past has taken him from the Neolithic to the Napoleonic and from Time Team to Waterloo!
We’ll be releasing a new Lockdown Lecture every week, so watch this space.
