View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party stopping at a small village in the Al Ghamid tribal region during their journey from Al Makhwah to the village of Thurayban. On the left a large pile of earth sits in the foreground in front of a cluster of square one storey stone buildings. On the right a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party waits with camels outside a straw roofed hut. In the far distance high mountains rise along the far edge of a flat plain.

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.
