Sažetak
Gertrude Margaret Lowthian Bell (1868-1926), an English writer, archaeologist, politician and adventurer, travelled the world twice over. She developed a particularly close connection with the Arab world, going deep into the desert and studying archaeological sites extending from the Syrian Desert to Asia Minor. Not only did she found the Iraq Museum in Baghdad and serve as Honorary Director of Antiquities, but she helped establish the state of Iraq. In her book Syria: The Desert and the Sown Bell chronicled her 1905 expedition from the Syrian Desert to Asia Minor. Together with Sir William M. Ramsay, she conducted excavations at Binbirkilise on Mount Karadag, which were described in the book The Thousand and One Churches. This major study of early Byzantine architecture in Anatolia provides a thorough analysis of other sites as well, all visited, recorded and photographed by Bell. Many of these monuments have since disappeared, so these texts and images have immense value. Particularly vivid and informative depictions of the places Bell visited during her travels are contained in her personal letters. In 1910 she undertook a trip to Split, Solin, Šibenik and Trogir, writing about it to her mother. The letters from Dalmatia, together with the photographs she took there, have so far been overlooked in research and will now be presented to the Split public. The eight letters and thirty-five photographs help us reconstruct Bell’s journey from Rome through Dalmatia and on to Trieste, and examine her impressions of the places she visited and people she met: Frano Bulić (“The first thing that happened here was that I definitely and forever lost my heart to the Director of Antiquities. He is the most charming old man imaginable and his name is Monsignor Bulić, ” she wrote in the letter of April 1, 1910), Max Dvorák, Georg Niemann, and others. The present research is based on the books and papers by Gertrude Bell which were given to the Newcastle University Library by her half- sister, Lady Richmond. They are under the care of the Special Collections Department and can be found at: www.gerty.ncl.ac.uk.
