|T.E. Lawrence (left of relief) at Karkemish.|
This article is an interesting glimpse into the way archeology and conflict intersect. In particular, the piece talks about an archeological site where Lawrence once worked as an assistant. The site, Karkemish, is on the boarder between Turkey and Syria.
And, no worries, we will not be visiting Karmeish . . . even though it would be interesting!
