A director of a film shot in Dorset is releasing a book about the death of Lawrence of Arabia.

Mark J.T. Griffin, who directed the award-winning Lawrence After Arabia, is releasing the non-fiction book Who Killed Lawrence of Arabia? on August 16.

In more than 200 pages the book expands on the evidence shown in Mark's film and investigates, in depth, Lawrence’s motorcycle crash close to his Clouds Hill home near Wareham, which ended his life six days later.

Mark said: "It is the result of many years of intense research, drawing on references including biographies, original documents, maps and photographs, many in colour, and is the first time all the information regarding the Lawrence’s crash is a single volume."
