Description

View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking through Al Dhafra sands during their journey from Dhibi well to Al Batin sands. Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions, tribesmen of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, ride their camels across a vast empty flat plain. Three men are mounted on camels, while one man walks alongside, leading his camels. Footprints disrupt the smooth sand, leading into the near foreground.

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.
