Hougoumont Farm excavations update July 21st

The team arrived over the weekend and excavation has begun:

So far, they have turned up “….an array of buttons, coins and a pair glasses were zapped by the metal detectors on the battle field and are in themselves opening up interesting questions and insights. For example:

The weight of the only modern musket ball discovered is 2g heavier than the average 1815 ball that has been weighed. Our finds specialist is keen to know if this is a common fact.
The dispersement of re-enactment finds could shed light on the type of artefacts that a soldier in 1815 might lose (albeit euros had not been in circulation!)”
