Waterloo: After The Battle

Museums, Military and maritime

200 years on from the epic battle of Waterloo – and, on an unrelated note, 41 years since ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest with a song of the same name – National Museum of Scotland look back on one of the most famous military engagements of all time, and how it was received north of the border. Learn about its impact within Scotland from public celebrations to political unrest, as well as the celebrity of veterans and the birth of battlefield tourism.
