WIS veterans travelling and digging with Waterloo Uncovered are now able to work towards gaining Universal Learning Credits. Veterans received support from DDMT in 2015 and 2017
"Waterloo Uncovered is a charity created to carry out archaeological work across the Waterloo Battlefield and in the process support veterans and serving military personnel with their recovery, education and transition to civilian life.
The charity was founded by Mark and fellow Coldstream Guards officer Charlie Foinette, Both men had studied archaeology before joining the army and serving in Afghanistan. Their frontline service convinced them that getting veterans involved in archaeology could be a useful way to help them along the road to recovery and wellbeing.
Waterloo Uncovered is comprised of five partner organisations: The Centre for Battlefield Archaeology at the University of Glasgow, L-P Archaeology, Service Public de Wallonie, Ghent University and University College Roosevelt/University of Utrecht.
For the first time this year, links with some of the project’s academic partners, including the University of Utrecht, mean that participants on the dig will be able to work towards gaining Universal Learning Credits that will count towards academic courses under the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS)."
DDMT were delighted to receive a copy of the recent review with the Trust logo prominently displayed.
We would love to hear from you if you know of any soldier (whether current or past), family member or any project that might benefit from our help.
