Dr Holly O’Farrell: Lecture on Mabel and Theodore Bent
5. Juli 2022 - 14:30 - 17:00 UTC+1
Mabel and Theodore Bent travelled through Europe, Arabia and parts of Africa establishing Theodore as a published writer on a wide variety of ancient civilisations and a collector for numerous museums. While Mabel had travelled alongside him, had taken part in digs, and had been instrumental in taking the notes that Theodore would depend on to write his books, little has been done to highlight her involvement and agency in their adventures. This presentation will look at the unprecedented journey of the Bents through the Hadhramaut region using Mabel Bent’s travel chronicles and collections to understand this couple and their relationship as travellers, archaeologists and collectors.
