Portrait of a family of Sahul Bedouin with their camels at the Ar Rumhiya wells near Ar Riyadh. A woman stands in the foreground beside her two seated children. Just behind them a few people unload the camels in their party. Two of the camels directly behind the woman in the foreground are wearing camel litters. In the far background a large flock of sheep or goats crosses the sandy plain in the 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.
