Description

View of a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party making coffee on a rocky plain during their journey from the Ramlat Unayq, north of Al Ain/Buraimi oasis, to Jabal Sumeini. In the foreground one of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions kneels next to a campfire in the midst of a vast flat plain. He wears a thobe (long shirt) and a ghutra (headscarf). Firewood is piled up behind the fire, on which a kettle is being heated. Scattered patches of grass grow on the dry ground. In the far distance a tall tree stands in the midst of a vast flat plain. In the far distance on the right a jagged mountain rises above 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.
