View of Bedouin or Arab men with camels outside the walls of Al Muwaiji Fort in Al Ain, then the home of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Four men wait with three camels in an area of bare sand outside the walls of Al Muwaiji Fort. Two of the camels are saddled with large sheepskins. On the right one of the men's rifles rests against the walls of the fort, which are topped with pointed parapets.

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.
