Today’s ‪#‎ManCrushMonday‬ goes out to Wendell Phillips, the most interesting man you’ve never heard of. Handsome, charismatic, and determined, he led an archaeological expedition into southern Arabia at age 28 and is the only American ever made a Bedouin sheikh. Relive his adventures when ‪Unearthing Arabia‬ opens on October 11.Photo courtesy American Foundation for the Study of Man.
