From bullet-pierced armor, skeletons of horses, medals, coins, and teeth of deceased soldiers, a rich trove of Waterloo treasure survives 200 years on. Objects allow us to reach out and touch the past and they play a living role in history today. Through them we can come closer to the reality experienced by the soldiers who fought at Waterloo, that most iconic of all battles. Using stunning photography, rare objects from the Napoleonic era tell us their story of the battle. From the discomfort of the uniforms to the drama of the battle-drums echoing across the battlefield, by examining each object and its place in the Waterloo story, we reach a deeper understanding of what happened on the battlefield and its significance today. Gareth Glover takes us on a fascinating journey through 100 objects, from the rare to the memorable, in a unique testimony to the importance of the battle of Waterloo, 200 years on.
