For a woman of her time and class, her achievements were extraordinary.  She broke free of social constraint and convention to make outstanding contributions in the male-dominated worlds of exploration, archaeology, and imperial statesmanship.  This study day will assess the character, career and contribution of Gertrude Bell in all three fields in the context of the tumultuous age through which she lived.
