Bonhams, 101 New Bond Street, London W1S 1SR
1800 for champagne reception. 1900 lecture begins.
Join us at Bonhams. London, on 21 September for the Waterloo Uncovered Lecture.
Hosted by Jeremy Paxman, the Waterloo Uncovered Lecture is an opportunity to hear more about our 2015 results and fieldwork, meet the team (from veterans to archaeologists) and learn about the project’s future.
The evening will start with a champagne reception and a chance to see some of our finds on display for the first time. There will be a short presentation from Mark Evans (project cofounder) and Tony Pollard (archaeological director), before welcoming historians Andrew Field and Barney White‐Spunner to the stage for a panel discussion — looking at the role archaeology plays alongside the historical record, and what archaeology has told us about the roles of the soldiers who fought at Waterloo in 1815. We will then open the floor for questions and answers.
The evening will end with the auction of an opportunity to visit the team in Waterloo during their 2016 at excavation.
As well as inform and entertain the evening is intended to raise money for our 2106 work. There is a therefore a suggested £50 donation per ticket.
We look forward to seeing you there!
