Waterloo Uncovered are staging a temporary takeover at the National Army Museum with their brand-new exhibition, Waterloo Remodelled.

  • Get a first glimpse of Major General Cowan's new model of the 1815 battlefield.
  • Meet living historians from both the Allied and French sides.
  • Listen to our band of fife and drums.
  • Try your hand at painting your own model.

  • See the original Siborne model and learn more about the Napoleonic Wars from our Museum team. Gallery talks begin at 11.00am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm.

Waterloo Uncovered is a charity that uses archaeology to help improve the lives of veterans and serving military personnel. For six years, they have brought together a diverse team of world-class archaeologists, university staff, veterans and serving soldiers to create new insights not only into the historic battlefield of Waterloo but also into the experiences of today’s servicemen and women.
