Veterans

Support for the military community is at the heart of Waterloo Uncovered. Our excavation teams are comprised of archaeologists, and serving & ex-serving personnel, for whom the experience can be a helpful for issues like welfare, transition, and recovery.

Several of the veterans who participated in our 2018/2019 summer excavation chose to share their stories and describe the positive impact the project has had on them.

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. Find out more in our Impact Report.

Our Veteran & Serving Military Personnel (VSMP) Programme has been developed over the past five years, run by an experienced Wellbeing & Support team and lasting the duration of twelve months.
