Sir Wilfred Patrick Thesiger (1910–2003) was a British explorer and travel writer born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Thesiger is best known for two travel books, Arabian Sands, which recounts his travels in Arabia and describes the vanishing way of life of the Bedouins; and The Marsh Arabs (1964), an account of the Madan, an indigenous people of southern Iraq. Thesiger took many photographs during his travels and donated his vast collection of 23,000 negatives to the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford.
