Who was the larger-than-life character who fought with the desert tribes during the Great Arab Revolt to help topple the Ottoman
Empire? How much of Lawrence’s story is true? How did the events he took part in shape today’s war-torn Middle East? Discover the extraordinary tale through artefacts, testimony and the results of years of research by a team of archaeologists in Jordan.

The National Civil War Centre’s acclaimed exhibition is the culmination of nine seasons of excavations in southern Jordan by the archaeological team of the Great Arab Revolt Project led by Dr Neil Faulkner and Dr Nick Saunders of Bristol University.

Entry to the exhibition is free with normal museum entrance. Keep an eye on the National Civil War Centre’s website HERE for details of lectures and events run alongside the exhibition.
