Description

View of a group of people standing outside Al Muwaiji fort in Al Ain. In the foreground a saddled camel stands beside a group of men and a few children outside Al Muwaiji fort. Behind them, a few people pass through the fort's entrance. The walls of the fort are decorated with triangular projections along the top edge. This image was taken during April 6-30, 1948, when Wilfred Thesiger stayed at Al Muwaiji fort in Al Ain as a guest of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

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.
