View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party packing up in the Baynunah or Al Khatam sands during their return journey to Al Ain. On the left, a man adjusts the load on a couched camel. On the right a man kneels in the sand facing into the far right distance. Around them a few laden camels are couched in the flat sand. Further beyond small dots of vegetation grow on the crests of low dunes that stretch into the far 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.
