Liar and charlatan, or military genius? Agent of British imperialism, or advocate of Arab nationalism? The debate about T E Lawrence has raged for a century. Following ten years’ fieldwork in the Arabian desert, Bristol University’s Neil Faulkner reassesses the man, evaluates his achievements, and offers new insight into the ongoing Middle Eastern crisis. Neil will be selling copies of his new book, Lawrence of Arabia’s War, at the lecture.

There will be other similar events around the country in due course, so don't feel you have to come to the London event if you are a distance away. There will be other opportunities.
