Explore the effects of the First World War on the mind, body and environment in the free, interactive exhibition Stress: Approaches to the First World War in University College London’s North Lodge.

The exhibition showcases diverse objects from the UCL collection, including a preserved coal miner's lung and magic lantern slides from Francis Galton and Ambrose Fleming, many of which are on display for the first time. Throughout the event, curators will be on hand to discuss their own interpretation of the objects on display and their understanding of stress in the First World War.

With a series of afternoon and evening events running alongside the exhibition, from a commemoration event on Armistice Day to a meditation session to demonstrate the physiology of stress, there will be plenty of opportunities to get involved and delve further into this complex subject.
