Description
View of Wilfred Thesiger's party at a well in the plains below Hamrat ad Duru, during the party's journey from Masruq well to Al Hubi village. Members of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin travelling party gather around a well opening. On the right one man is crouched in the well digging out sand. Behind him on the right Alaiwa bin Lutaiya (right), a tribesman of the Marakhin lineage of Duru Bedouin, stands watching with his hands on his hips. To the left of Alaiwa, Huaishil, a sheikh of the Mahamid lineage of Duru Bedouin, crouches holding a camel stick. He is wearing a light coloured thobe (shirt), topped with a waistcoat, and an embroidered headscarf that partially blocks his face from view.

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.
