Description

View of Bedouin men in Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party getting water from the well at Shisr. The men stand in a line in the underground passage, conveying pans of water from the well to the surface. On the far left two men pour water for camels waiting at the surface. At Shisr the well is located far underground at the bottom of the sink hole.

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.
