The University of Newcastle has put the Gertrude Bell Archives online (http://www.gerty.ncl.ac.uk/). Literally thousands of photos and letters by the woman who was the driving force behind the founding of modern Iraq. Incredibly interesting stuff.

edit: Google brings you some of the best stuff. Rory Stewart in the NY Review of Books with a critical take on Bell (http://www.nybooks.com/articles/20691).
