By sheer chance, ex-Lonely Planet guidebook writer Pat Yale stumbled upon the fact that the great British explorer, archaeologist and writer Gertrude Bell had made at least 11 visits to Turkey between 1889 and 1914. Following in her footsteps took Pat to places as far apart in geography and public awareness as Troy and Anıtlı (Hah) in the Tur Abdin. Her talk will look at some of the discoveries she made along the way. The event will be followed a short discussion led by Mark Jackson, professor of Byzantine Archaeology and co-curator of the Gertrude Bell Archive at Newcastle University. The event is co-organised with American Research in Turkey (ARIT)
