Description

View of the stone watchtower at Al Maqta, a ford between Abu Dhabi and the mainland. In the near distance a tall circular stone watchtower sits in the middle of an expanse of flat water. In the distance beyond the the watchtower a low rocky outcrop runs along the horizon.

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.
