An eight-year-old T.E Lawrence moved with his family to 2 Polstead Road in 1896, which would become his home throughout his childhood. A bungalow was built in the back garden for the teenage Lawrence, which was the place the future archaeologist and military officer spent some of his time. The blue plaque to commemorate that T.E. Lawrence lived at the property in Oxford. London’s famous blue plaques link the people of the past with the buildings of the present.
