LAWRENCE'S FIRST APPEARANCE IN PRINT. He worked as an archaeologist at the site of Carchemish in Mesopotamia from 1911-14 under the direction of his lifelong friend D. G. Hogarth. The archaeological dig in northern Syria, coming at the end of his walking tour of Syria when researching his thesis on crusader castles, was a key moment in forming Lawrence's devotion to the Middle East. Lawrence contributed text to volume 1, and photographs and notes to all three volumes.
