View of a small fort in the Al Ain / Al Buraimi oasis. In the near foreground a pile of gravel sits in front of a small fort with two watchtowers. The walls and towers are built from mud. In the right background a grove of date palms grows alongside the fort. In the far distance beyond the mountain Jabal Hafit (Jebel Hafeet) rises high above 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.
