On Tuesday 5 June, the Algarve Archaeological Association (AAA) will be presenting two lectures, in English, by Dr Juliette Desplat titled ‘I am not your correspondent.’ Archaeologist Gertrude Bell and the British intelligence network in the Middle East during the First World War.

The first lecture will be at 2.30pm at the Museu do Traje in São Bras and the second lecture will be at 6pm at the Convento de São José in Lagoa.
In this lecture Dr Juliette Desplat will be talking about the work of Gertrude Bell an English archaeologist, writer, traveller, political officer and administrator.
Gertrude Margaret Lowthian Bell CBE (1868-1926) was born into a wealthy family and was the first woman to graduate with a firstclass degree in Modern History from Oxford University. She travelled extensively, including two round-the-world trips in 1897-1898 and 1902-1903. From the turn of the century, Gertrude developed a love of the Arab people: she learned their languages, investigated their archaeological sites and travelled deep into the desert.
Dr Juliette Desplat is Head of Modern Overseas, Intelligence and Security Records at The National Archives in the UK. She specialises in Middle Eastern history in the 19th and 20th centuries.
