Description

View of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions taking a break in the Kidan plains (Suhul al Kidan), north of Khaba well in the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali). In the foreground men stand next to their loaded camels, one of which is couched. Behind the camels low dunes stretch 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.
