View of rocky landscape at Al Birk village. In the foreground a cluster of large boulders lies on a vast flat plain. On the far side of the plain a long wall is built across a rise. Behind the wall the roofs of huts in the village of Al Birk are visible along the top of the rise.

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.
