Description

View of Wilfred Thesiger's party camping in the sands during the party's journey from Jabal Sumeini to the port city of Sharjah. Five men sit in the sand next to a large bush. One man stands to the right of the group. A number of pots sit in the sand around the men. In the background tufts of vegetation grow on a vast flat plain that stretches into 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.
