CONFLICT INTO COLLABOARTION
The military community is at the heart of Waterloo Uncovered’s DNA, and military participants bring their unique perspective, skills, and experience to help the archaeology. The Waterloo Uncovered team comprises internationally-renowned archaeologists, students, specialists in many different fields, as well as military veterans and serving personnel. International partnerships are key: we work closely with local archaeological experts in Belgium and so far, we are working with groups of military participants from the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. This recognition that European nations share a common history is an important part of our work.
“Whether they are military, ex-military or “civvies”, everybody bonded, and I made good friends for life” - UK military participant.
