In The Steps of Dame Freya Stark: Travels In the Land of Incense

In the late 1930’s Freya Stark made two journeys into the interior of Southern Arabia (modern Yemen) where she worked both for the British government as a diplomat-cum-propagandist—it was just before the outbreak of World War II—and as an archaeologist in the then scarcely known (to Europeans) Wadi Hadramawt. We follow her journeys through Southern Arabia, using her written records and photographs (depicting a way of life for both the Arab inhabitants and European colonisers that has now vanished) as well as those of the speaker from a more recent time.
