Injured war veterans help with archaeological digs
Published on April 10th, 2012 | by Sevaan Franks
Operation Nightingale is an army project in Wales which takes injured war veterans and rehabilitates them through work on archaeological digs.
Soldiers, some of whom have suffered double amputations, gunshot wounds, explosions while in vehicles and burns, worked on the site digging trenches and revealing the walls of a Roman building.
The groups have been staying and socialising in the area all week, giving soldiers from the same regiment the opportunities to make friends and build a network of support.
