Abstract

Napoleon Crossing the Foyle is a multi-modal outreach project, funded by Ulster University's Provosts' Offices that engages cultural groups who have a shared interest in Napoleonic History.This free, one-day event will combine elements of Historical Re-enactment, Conflict Simulation Games, Academic Lectures and Traditional Singing all connected to the theme of Napoleon. Expect to see Historical Re-enactors in Period Uniforms, a large-scale Battle played as a Table-top Wargame with detailed Miniatures and Terrain. Expect to hear martial music on Fife and Drum,Traditional Ballads; sympathetic and unsympathetic to Napoleonic themes and academic talks on historical context and cultural significance.
