Author Biography - Gertrude Bell

Gertrude Bell was a British writer, archaeologist, and political analyst who left a privileged life in Victorian England to become a citizen of the world. One of the first women to graduate from Oxford, she traveled to Persia, where she was passionately drawn to the Arab people, their language, and their architecture. Bell's achievements there were stunning: she established an archaeology musem and was one of the people responsible for creating the Iraq that exists today.
