Andrew has always had an interest in history, especially military history, so when the opportunity arose to join the 2017 Waterloo Uncovered excavation, he leapt at the chance. As well as the archaeology, Andrew found the whole process to be therapeutic, describing how he was surrounded by people that could empathise with his P.T.S.D, not questioning him if he needed to be on his own. When he was at the dig site he could focus on the simple act of digging, blocking everything else out.
