View of Sheikh Saqr bin Mohammed Al Qasimi's fort in the town of Ras Al Khaimah. In the right foreground two men walk towards a stand of palms growing on a large sand flat. In the distance beyond 'arish huts and enclosures made from palm fronds border the left side of the flat. Sheikh Saqr bin Mohammed Al Qasimi's fort sits in the central distance, while further beyond the Ru'us Al Jibal mountains rise in 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.
