Lawrence of Arabia - Centenary Tour
T E Lawrence reputation precedes him. The daring exploits of this mysterious Englishman made him an object of intense fascination which persists to this day. He was sent to Cairo as an intelligence officer in 1916, but vanished into the desert a year later. Once there, he united and led the Arab tribes in adventures recounted in his ‘Seven Pillars of Wisdom’. A man of many titles - diplomat, strategist, soldier and author - Lawrence held each one incredibly well.
Now, for the first time, we can retrace Lawrence’s campaigns on the ground - sifting fact from fiction. The Great Arab Revolt Project has been exploring the archaeology of the First World War in the stunning desert landscapes of southern Jordan over the last 10 years. Led by an academic director of the project, our tour utlises off-road vehicles to visit railway stations, hilltop redoubts, blockhouses, military camps, and loop-holed breastworks discovered by the archaeological team. This is an unprecedented opportunity to relive the war in the landscape where it was fought, alongside Dr Neil Faulkner, one of the world’s leading authorities on Lawrence of Arabia’s war.
100 years on from its beginning, we follow in the footsteps of Lawrence and his army; and discover the role he played in the painful birth of an emerging Middle East.
