Mapping war in the Middle East
A member of the TE Lawrence Studies List posted a pretty useful link today to a site that gives a neat 90 second visual display of who has controlled the Middle East over the course of history. It is all mapped out against a timeline from 3,000 BC, up to the present day. See Maps of War.
We thought it was good background, especially to the subjects of our exhibition who were engaged in rolling back the Ottoman Empire.
Hopefully we will also soon be able to provide you with some more detailed online maps that help you to identify the locations we will be mentioning in the blog and the exhibition itself.
