View of a small village in the Humaydah tribal region between Suq ath Thulutha and Wadi Hali. In the foreground a few people stand at the entranceway to a hut made from palm leaves or branches. On the right more people sit beneath a large canopy attached to a second hut with a pointed roof. In the far distance high mountains rise along the far edge of the 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.
