Your questions answered

In this video recorded in 2015, Chris Woolgar and Karen Robson answer some learners' queries about the Battle of Waterloo and its aftermath.

In this video (10 minutes) Chris answers four of the questions you asked – about the aftermath of the battle, Wellington’s role in the peace deliberations, the treatment of soldiers after Waterloo, and support for Napoleon in Britain.

There is a link below to the National Archive’s list(s) of soldiers awarded the Waterloo campaign medal, which Karen refers to in the video.

Note that this is the ‘end of week 2’ video from 2015, added as a substitute because we were unable to film a new one as planned last week.
