View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party walking through a palm grove cultivated by local villagers in Liwa oasis. In the central foreground a tall date palm tree grows beside a depression on the left. Two of Wilfred Thesiger's Rashid Bedouin travelling companions, one of whom is leading a camel, walk behind the palm. In the background a large grove of date palms grows in the sand. Behind the grove softly rolling dunes stretch along the horizon. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Al Ain to Liwa oasis, Al Dhafra and Baynunah sands in November and December 1948.
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.
