T. E. Lawrence Studies is edited by Jeremy Wilson


This website is addressed to anyone interested in the life or career of T.E. Lawrence, including the academic community and the media.

There is no form of membership or paid subscription. Much of our content is copyright, but it is freely available to read here.

I work on the site in parallel with editing and publishing scholarly editions of T.E. Lawrence's writings and correspondence through Castle Hill Press. My wife and I think of the press and the website as complementary projects, each helping to advance knowledge in the field of T.E. Lawrence studies. For this reason there is a link to the press website in the top navigation bar, and you will occasionally find links to content on the Castle Hill Press website, or notices of Castle Hill Press editions. The search engine scans the content of both sites.

Neither I, nor Castle Hill Press, nor T.E. Lawrence Studies have any current connection with the "T.E. Lawrence Society".


Privacy policy

We make no attempt to identify individual visitors to T.E. Lawrence Studies. Web-host server logs often show the countries and sometimes the cities that visitors come from (though the city can be incorrect). In some cases, also, the computer network you use may be identified, showing for example that there has been a visitor from a particular university. 

The site uses Google Analytics, but we do not share the analytics information. Most large websites use some form of analytics software. It enables us to understand what interests visitors to and how they use the site. That helps us make improvements. It also draws our attention to technical errors.

Google Analytics sets cookies, but the information collected is anonymous. If you wish, you can easily block or remove cookies through the settings in your web browser. For more information see our cookies page.


As noted above, in parallel with T.E. Lawrence Studies we own and run Castle Hill Press, a scholarly fine press. Castle Hill Press pays the operating costs of this website, and some of the information here comes from research for Castle Hill Press publications.

Apart from references to the press and its editions of writing by T.E. Lawrence, this site contains no advertising.

We welcome and, to the extent that we have time, will try to answer serious questions about T. E. Lawrence.

Before contacting us, please use the search engine to see if the answer to your question is not already available on the site, for example in the chronology or FAQ sections.

I may post in-coming questions on the moderated T.E. Lawrence Studies discussion list, or forward them to a particular person who is likely to know the answer. In either case you might receive an answer from a third party.
