Join our curator Chris Cooper in uncovering the history of medals and medal ribbons.

Two centuries ago, the Waterloo Medal recognised for the first time the individual acts of all soldiers in a conflict regardless of their rank or role, though other institutions had been awarding medals well before.

Join curator Chris Cooper as he explores the museum's collection of medals and medal ribbons, revealing a story that is about extraordinary feats, ordinary lives and striking anomalies.
