When World War One broke out, at the age of 61, the Egyptian archaeologist Flinders Petrie tried to join up but had to watch as his students and even his wife put on military uniforms. This exhibition considers the use of archaeologists within the war campaigns in the Middle East; many trained by Petrie, from the well-known T. E. Lawrence to the almost unknown Rupert Duncan Willey. ‘Different Perspectives’ considers the archaeological legacy and human cost of the war in the region.
Open Tuesday - Saturday, 1-5pm
