1918: Victory and a new Europe

Museums and galleries in Cambridge will be closed to the public as part of a period of national/local restrictions.

In 1918 the western allies, led by Britain, France and the United States, finally defeated Germany and its allies, after four years of brutal conflict. The great empires of Germany, Austria and Turkey fell, and a new Europe was born. The end of the First World War and its consequences are seen through the coins, medals and banknotes of the time.
