Description

View of Wilfred Thesiger's party trekking across dunes in Al Humrah sands during their journey to Umm az Zumul. Three of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions trek in a line across a wind-rippled dune, heading from the left to the right. The men at the front and back of the line lead their camels on foot, while the man in the middle of the line rides his camel. Behind them a bare tree grows on the dune, and in the distance a vast sabkha (salt flat) lies beyond rolling dunes.

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.
