This week we begin to use the classic movie "Lawrence of Arabia" as a framework for a study of the Middle East, or SW Asia.

The last chapter of Lawrence's life was lived quietly, as a successful writer, in this house in the south of England. But he won fame in fighting wildly alongside Arabian forces in WWI in the deserts of the Mid East.
