Sunrise breaks in Oxford, England, home of Thomas Edward Lawrence, who came to be known as Lawrence of Arabia. Hooked on history as a boy, "Ned" roamed the fields and riverbanks behind his home in Oxford, on the lookout for artifacts from Britain's age of chivalry. Later the scholar turned soldier fought alongside Arab forces in the Middle East.
