Find out more about the role of archaeologists as spies and soldiers in the Middle East during World War One, with Robert Fleming, Information and Outreach Curator at the National Army Museum. Using infamous figures, such as T E Lawrence, and the less well known, the complicated history of the British involvement in the former Ottoman Empire will be considered. This event is the public launch of the Petrie Museum’s Heritage Lottery Funded project on the Middle East and archaeology as part of the First World War Centenary.
