Description

View of Wilfred Thesiger's party resting in sand dunes west of Wadi Samhan, during their journey from Al Ain south to Wadi Samhan. In the foreground one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions sits beside two camels. One of the camels is standing, the other is couched in the sand. Another member of the party stands in the background. Further behind a large sand dune rises up to a high peak in the far background.

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.
