The Archaeology of the Arab Revolt

Here's an interesting piece on the Popular Archaeology site about an archaeological survey looking at traces of the Arab Revolt during World War I.  It is, perhaps inevitably and certainly predictably, illustrated with a portrait of T.E. Lawrence,  but then the average reader is unlikely to have any other point of reference that would ring a bell.

For more information, the Great Arab Revolt Project has a website here  (and an Arabic summary in a Word document here); there's a blog but it has only a few posts.
