Description

View of a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party in Al Dhafra sands during the party's journey to Baynunah. In the left distance one of Wilfred Thesiger's Rashid Bedouin companions sits on a camel standing next to a few large bushes growing on the slope of a sand dune dotted with scattered vegetation. The camel stands facing into the left distance with its head turned towards the foreground. In the far distance beyond, bare rolling sand dunes stretch into the far horizon. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Al Ain to Liwa oasis, Al Dhafra and Baynunah sands in November and December 1948.

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.
