View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking across a dune towards a palm grove in Liwa oasis. In the left near distance three of Wilfred Thesiger's Rashid Bedouin companions ride camels across a steep sand dune dotted with tufts of qassis (sedge). Above the dune salt bushes and palm trees grow on a flat on top of a dune, while in the distance beyond more dunes rise high above the flat. 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.
