Description

View of the main gate into the walled city of Shibam in Wadi Hadhramawt. In the distance locals walk in front of the large gate through the Shibam city wall. On either side of the gate tall, multi-storey buildings sit along the wall. A high palm tree rises above the city wall.

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.
