View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking through Al Batin sands during their journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) from Al Dhafra sands to Liwa oasis. Three members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, tribesmen of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, ride their mounts along the crest of a high dune which surrounds a flat plain. In the foreground the men's camels walk past a clump of bushes, some of them grazing on the bushes as they pass. In the background the flat plain, dotted with sparse vegetation, spreads out in the depression behind them.
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.
