Description

View of three members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking in the Al Dhafra sands, north-west of Liwa oasis. In the foreground clumps of qassis (sedge) grow on a flat stretch of sand. In the left distance two of Wilfred Thesiger's Rashid Bedouin companions sit on their camels, which are grazing on bushes. Further beyond a third man rides his camel followed by a baggage camel towards far dunes. In the distance beyond low rolling dunes dotted with scattered vegetation continue into the horizon below a cloudless sky. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Al Ain to Liwa oasis, Al Dhafra and Baynunah sands in November and December 1948.

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.
