Gertrude Bell

Archaeologist and traveller and much more.

Below are some of the photographs taken by Gertrude Bell, largely in the Middle East, around the turn of the last century. Travelling deep into the deserts, she immersed herself amongst the people, politics and histories of the regions she visited.
The images speak for themselves...

Her diaries and many more images can be seen at Newcastle University Library
