JORDAN: Maybe they were a little taste of home in the far-off desert. At the site of Wuheida, camp-base for Prince Feisal's Northern Army, archaeologists have discovered tobacco tins that once held Wills cigarettes for British and Arab troops during the Great Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Turks in World War I. T. E. Lawrence (of Arabia, that is) was attached to Feisal's army and probably visited the site many times.
