11.00 am, Tuesday, 10 March 2020

This illustrated lecture, presented by The Arts Society Dumfries and Galloway may be of interest to members and friends of DGNHAS.

The archaeologist, historian and writer, Dr Neil Faulkner will contrast the legend of Lawrence of Arabia with the true story of what happened in the famous desert war 1916–18.

  • Is the legend a myth?
  • Was Lawrence a liar and a charlatan, or was he in fact a brilliant military commander and a sincere advocate of the Arab national cause?

Entry to non-members of The Arts Society Dumfries and Galloway is £8, payable at the door.
