Briton showcases 1970s UAE Art Show in Dubai
At a time when there were uneven, single-lane roads full of pot holes, Caroline Bancroft and her two young children could be seen zooming along in a red-and-white MGB convertible sports car, a rarity on the UAE roads even today and much more so in the 1970s.

"I am thrilled to have this wonderful opportunity to share my work thanks to the expertise of the Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage in producing this beautiful book. My dream has been realised. I hope that 'The Desert Knows Me Well...' will be enjoyed as much as I enjoyed working for it all those years ago."
ADACH to publish Caroline's book
7 August 2008
In the fantastic culmination of nearly 30 years of waiting, The Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage has confirmed its proposal to publish Caroline's book of pen and ink drawings and researched poetry.
'By publishing this unique book ADACH is proudly sharing the special moments and feelings experienced during her stay in UAE, and saluting her profound craft in preserving through art some of the old places and sites, some of which no longer exist, but which still constitute an important part of the collective Emirati heritage and memory"
Mohammed Al Shehhi, Chief Editor, Publications, The Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage
