Arabian Warriors- Lawrence and Bell


The story of two remarkable individuals whose travels, secret intelligence work in the First World War and post war diplomacy helped to shape the Middle East which we know today. We will try and unravel the tangled skein of Lawrence’s war adventures and learn how the heroic legend he helped to create became a monster he fled. We will investigate Gertrude Bell, mountaineer, archaeologist, kingmaker, without whose knowledge, and daring pre-war desert travels,  Lawrence’s Arab Revolt would not have been possible.BellK_218_Gertrude_Bell_in_Iraq_in_1909_age_41
