Description

View of one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions at a fort in Al Ain / Al Buraimi oasis. On the right a Bedouin man (possibly Musallim bin Al Kamam, a sheikh of the Musaifar lineage of Rashid Bedouin) walks past a large tree on the left, towards a fort with a three storey square watchtower. Beneath the tree on the left is a palm frond fence.

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.
