Description

View of Wilfred Thesiger's party at a well in the plains below Hamrat ad Duru, during the party's journey from Masruq well to Al Hubi village. Five members of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin travelling party and two camels stand beside a well. Huaishil, a sheikh of the Mahamid lineage of Duru Bedouin, stands at the centre right holding a bowl. He wears a light coloured thobe (shirt), topped with a waistcoat, and an embroidered headscarf. One member of the party is crouched in the well, digging it out, and wet sand lies around the well opening. In the distance beyond a vast sand flat stretches uninterrupted into the far distance.

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.
