A New Museum for Basrah

A talk by Sir Terence Clark KBE CMG CVO

30 October 2019

Where: 7pm at the Medical Society of London, Lettsom House, 11 Chandos Street W1G 9EB

Basrah has had an association with Britain going back to the 17th century. In more recent times it has been occupied by British armed forces who conceived the idea of leaving a new museum as their legacy. It took over a decade to develop the project but Basrah’s new archaeological and historical museum is now a reality and a rare success story in this turbulent region.

Sir Terence Clark is a former Ambassador to Iraq and was Chairman of the Trustees of the Friends of the Basrah Museum from 2010-19.
