Event description

Description

Ability to decipher codes, understand cartography, mastery of other languages and live simply in the desert landscape are all skills which can be applied to being an archaeologist but also are useful in war time for the purposes of espionage. Join one of our community volunteers from our Heritage Lottery Fund project, Different Perspectives: Archaeology and the Middle East in WWI, for a lunchtime talk on Archaeology and Espionage in WWI in the Middle East. Using Flinders Petrie as our main point of connection, you’ll be introduced to the emerging research on Petrie’s war and the links between archaeology and the intelligence services during WWI.
