Description

View of two members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking through sand dunes in the vicinity of the Ramlat Unayq, near the Dhahir mountains north of Al Ain. The party is travelling from Al Ain to Jabal Sumeini. In the right foreground a man wearing a thobe (long shirt) and ghutra (headscarf) stands on a dune. He has a rifle slung across his chest. In the near distance a second man rides a camel across rolling sands dotted with tufts of vegetation. In the distance beyond a vast rocky plain spreads out below a far mountain.

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.
