Qatar and parts of the Indian subcontinent have belonged to the same empires on six occasions since 120 BCE. In this talk, Dr. James Onley, the Library's Director of Historical Research and Partnerships, tells the fascinating yet mostly forgotten story of Qatar and the British Indian Empire from 1916 to 1947. This will be followed by a guided tour of the "Qatar, India & the Gulf" exhibition at the Library.
