Please pardon our mess! Unfortunately, the trusty old website of the Seven Pillars House of Wisdom stopped working on August 1st, after over a decade of loyal service. We were not able to transfer the system, but we were able to save all of the articles and contributor bios, which are located here. Over the coming months we will be making changes to make it as functional as the original website, more or less. Until then, we apologize for the inconvenience!
