Description

View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking through sand dunes in the vicinity of the Ramlat Unayq, near the Dhahir mountains north of Al Ain. The party is travelling from Al Ain to Jabal Sumeini. In the foreground a wide expanse of bare, wind-rippled sand leads into rolling downs dotted with bushes and other small vegetation. On the far right one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin or Arab guides walks along a dune. Further beyond, the rest of Wilfred Thesiger's party ride camels across sands. In the far distance on the right, rocky mountains rise above the sands.

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.
