Description

View of Wilfred Thesiger's party riding through the Al Qafa' or As Saruq region north of Liwa oasis. Two members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, tribesmen of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, sit on their camels beside a small bush at the bottom of a dune. Each man leads a tethered baggage camel behind their own mount. Behind the men is a large, crescent-shaped dune which is mostly bare of vegetation. The rock floor beneath the sand is exposed in the depression beneath the dune.

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.
