Waterloo Uncovered’s Archaeological Director Tony Pollard explains how the area just beyond the wall of the formal garden of a Belgian Chateau became known as the ‘Killing Ground’, the scene of some of the bloodiest fighting of the Battle of Waterloo.
We’re hosting two exciting virtual talks this week, in collaboration with the National Army Museum and DigVentures’ DigNation Festival!
Waterloo Uncovered announce a virtual programme of lectures and activities to replace our 2020 Summer excavation in Belgium, cancelled due to coronavirus.
In the second lecture of our Lockdown Lectures series, WU Archaeological Director Dr Stuart Eve gives an introduction to the archaeological techniques we use at Waterloo, including why we dig where we dig and how we locate and record our finds.
Find out more about our amazing discoveries, including some of the only human remains found on the battlefield. This is the second film in a series covering our dig of 2019.
Catch up on the latest Waterloo Uncovered news, including your chance to get involved in
creating a large scale diorama of Waterloo; an update on our 2.6 Challenge campaign; and the launch of our brand new Lockdown Lectures series.
