Exhibition Announcement: “Napoleon’s Last Stand: 100 Days in 100 Objects”

An online exhibition, curated by the University of Warwick, will provide a new angle on the Battle of Waterloo, whose bicentennial anniversary is commemorated this year.

Launching 23 February 2015, the exhibition will trace Napoleon’s return and defeat by releasing one object for each day of the period known as the ‘100 Days’. Go to http://www.100days.eu to relive the drama of Napoleon’s return day by day.

As part of the backstory already up on the site, you can find out what links Napoleon and Pixerécourt’s 1805 melodrama Robinson Crusoe.
