Description

View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party making camp on a rocky plain during their journey from the Ramlat Unayq, north of Al Ain/Buraimi oasis, to Jabal Sumeini. In the foreground three members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party stand on either side of a large tree in the midst of a vast flat plain. Gear is scattered around the camp. A rifle and some bags hang off branches of the tree. Scattered patches of grass grow on the dry ground. In the far distance a jagged mountain rises above the horizon.

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.
