View of a small village in the Al Ghamid tribal region between the villages of Al Makhwah and Thurayban. Two stone huts topped with straw roofs sit in the midst of aflat plain. A large pile of earth sits in the foreground, and in the far distance high mountains rise along the far edge of the plain.

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.
