Since the project began in 2015, Waterloo Uncovered has grown a lot. With over 2200 finds in just five weeks of excavation (over two years), we are learning more than ever before on the battle of Waterloo, transforming our understanding of it, and the lives of those who come on our excavations.
We’ve begun our work at Hougoumont Farm but there’s an entire battlefield still out there waiting to be excavated before it’s too late and the archaeology is lost forever. The more of the battlefield we explore the more we will uncover, and the longer the project runs, the more soldiers and veterans we will be able to help.
It costs around £1000 to take a soldier or veteran away with us for two weeks. That’s just £66 a day to support their recovery, welfare, and transition into civilian life. And with over 2200 finds since the start of the project, the archaeology is also costly. To make the project work we rely on donations from trusts, foundations, charities and individuals.
Please help us carry on our work — every bit makes a difference, and our donate page has all the information you need to donate in whatever way is easiest for you. We’re also happy with donations in kind: if you have a bit of kit (from a trowel to a JCB digger) you can lend or give us we’d be only too happy to hear from you. If you happen to own an airline and want to fly us to and from Belgium, please don’t hesitate to pick up the phone!
We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
