The first thing that occurred to me was how ahead of his time he was to realize the power of the moving image to enthrall the public back home!

      There are short film clips of Sir Henry Wellcome's 1911-14 excavations
      at the famous site Jebel Moya, south-central Sudan, which I am
      re-examining. The clips are available on the Wellcome Trust's website.
