Lawrence of Arabia: Excavating a Legend


5th February – Lawrence of Arabia.  Excavating a legend.


Lecturer: Neil Faulkner


At  Kings College Cambridge and the Institute of Archaeology UCL, Neil Faulkner works as a lecturer, writer, archaeologist and broadcaster.  On the basis of new evidence, Neil will contrast the legend of Lawrence of Arabia with the true story of what happened in the famous desert war of 1916/18. Is the legend a myth?Was Lawrence a liar and charlatan? Or was  he a brilliant military commander and sincere advocate of the Arab cause?
