Description

View of two of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions walking past a settlement in Al Muwaiji by Al Muwaiji Fort in Al Ain oasis. In the near left distance two Bedouin men walk towards a tent built of palm frond mats, which has been erected beneath a large tree in the centre of a vast expanse of sand. In the far left distance Al Muwaiji Fort sits behind low sand dunes. In the far right distance a further settlement of tents sits among tall trees.

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.
