Description

View of Wilfred Thesiger's party travelling in the region of Kidan plains (Suhul al Kidan) or Al Batin sands in the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali). Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions lead camels towards the horizon. The party is travelling in two groups, with the smaller party of two Bedouin men with three camels in the near distance and a second larger group travelling in the far distance.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
