Archaeologist
Summer excavations 2015, 2016 & 2017

Emily was asked to come out and supervise at Waterloo Uncovered in 2015. “Getting the chance to put my hands into the soil of one the most important battles of modern history was just too good of an opportunity to miss!” She was very excited by the high potential for archaeology on the project, and was rewarded by finding a French gunflint, near a ditch that was reportedly used as a position to attack Hougoumont Farm. Above all, she loved teaching veterans about the archaeological process and showing them how they can record the past for the future. “This work really does have benefits, it is amazing to see what archaeology can do to improve physical and psychological well‐being.”
