About this Artefact by: Waterloo 200 Coordinator

Date added: 13 Mar 2015

This powder horn (used to hold gunpowder for muskets) is made from bone, elaborately carved to commemorate the defeat of the French invasion of Wales in 1797. This invasion was part of over 20 years of war between the United Kingdom and France, which finally ended with the Battle of Waterloo. It was the last time that foreign troops succeeded in landing in Britain.
