View of a camel caravan arriving at the open air market in the town of Qalat Bishah. In the foreground two Arab men stand amongst a large herd of couched caravan camels. The camels are heavily loaded with goods. In the distance beyond many people rest with their animals in a large open area beside a high walled building.

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.
