During the first few billion years of cosmic time the first galaxies in the Universe form. As these systems grow, they are thought to reionise the pervading neutral gas in the intergalactic medium. In the last decade, large samples of these galaxies have been identified with the Hubble Space Telescope. Despite this remarkable progress, the physical properties of these galaxies are still largely unknown. I will describe the step-by-step progress that has been made over the last fews years in uncovering the stellar populations, radiation fields and even the first dynamical measurements of some of these earliest-known sources of light in the Universe, using the world’s most powerful observatories such as ALMA and the Very Large Telescope.
