Intact remains of 'British' soldier found at Waterloo site


Nearly 200 years after the Battle of Waterloo, the complete skeleton of a young, possibly British soldier, has been discovered at the site of the battle.

Archaeologists hope that this rare find will help them to identify the soldier and understand under what circumstances he died.

Trystan Young reports.

Correction: The original figure of British war dead was inaccurately reported, the video has been updated to correct that error
