View of three members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party at Radum in Liwa oasis. In the foreground three of Wilfred Thesiger's Rashid Bedouin companions sit atop their camels, heading towards a high stone watchtower at the Bani Yas village of Radum. On the left one of the camels is eating some vegetation, while on the right Warad, the party's saluki dog, trots along beside the camels. In the far distance Radum's high stone watchtower, likely made of gypsum, sits in an expanse of sand high above a grove of date palms. 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.
