200 years have passed since the Battle of Waterloo took place, on 18th June 1815, halting Napoleon’s relentless march towards European dominion and securing Britain’s role as a key player on the continent.  Facts and figures and the dynamics of victory, as well as a variety of contemporary and later narrations (eye-witness accounts, water colours and oils, poems and fiction), all different perceptions, different memories of this momentous event.
