A group of four young boys standing on what looks like a termite mound, with tufted grasses growing around it. The film number suggests that they are boys from Yakwach cattle camp on the Sobat River which Evans-Pritchard revisited in 1935. The roof of a cattle byre (luak) can just be made out to the left side.
