An archaeological dig of the battlefield of Waterloo begins today. It's being undertaken by British and Belgian archaeologists, helped by army service personnel and veterans suffering from injury or PTSD. It’s part of the ‘Operation Nightingale’ scheme which gets servicemen involved in archaeology. The dig will take place on and around Hougoumont farm and will be on a much bigger scale than the archaeological work that has been done there before. Robert Hall is a BBC special correspondent and is with Mark Evans a former captain in the Coldstream guards diagnosed with PTSD after a tour of Helmand.
