View of Sheikh Saqr bin Mohammed Al Qasimi's fort in the town of Ras Al Khaimah. In the foreground cooking pots sit on a ledge in one corner of Sheikh Saqr bin Mohammed Al Qasimi's fort. Below the fort the town of Ras Al Khaimah sits on a sandy plain. One and two storey buildings, 'arish huts and enclosures made from palm fronds sit in the sand along the shore. In the far background the ocean spreads out flat and calm to the far 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.
