T.E. Lawrence (or “Lawrence of Arabia,” 1888-1935) was an eccentric archaeologist and Oxford graduate active in the Middle East during the Great War as a military advisor to the Arab leadership. He fought alongside local troops and dreamed of an independent united Arabia, yet (to some extent) was plagued by his successes; he recognized he could never be more than a British hand moving about in a foreign land, extraordinary though he was.
He died at age 46 in a motorcycle accident on his Brough Superior, now housed in the Imperial War Museum in London.
