Description

View of three members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party at a Bani Yas settlement near Radum in Liwa oasis. In the foreground Wilfred Thesiger's Rashid Bedouin companions pause with their camels on a sand flat dotted with clumps of qassis (sedge) and salt bushes. On the far left two men adjust the load on a couched camel, while three men wait on their camels nearby. High above the flat a number of 'arish huts made of palm fronds sit on sloped dunes. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Al Ain to Liwa oasis, Al Dhafra and Baynunah sands in November and December 1948.

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.
