T. E. Lawrence...more than a man of action
More than just a man of adventures in the sand, T. E. Lawrence conducted excavations at Carchemish , near Jerablus in northern Syria.
"At the age of 46, a few weeks after leaving the service, Lawrence was fatally injured in a motorbike accident on a Brough Superior SS100 in Dorset, close to his cottage, Clouds Hill, near Wareham. A dip in the road obstructed his view of two boys on their bicycles; he swerved to avoid them, lost control and was thrown over the handlebars of his motorcycle. He died six days later."
