Amateur home movie footage of a fox hunt 1930's

Hunting - Initial preparations. Of particular interest is the inclusion of women, one wearing a bowler hat and full hunting regalia. Riders including young children and adults set off. At this point film quality becomes very washed out and grainy. Castle or church ruins. A holiday party are escorted around a tourist site, possibly Turkey or Jordan ( Ephesus or Jerash ). Several panning shots of ornate pillars. Possible archaeological dig under way to discover Roman architecture. Two camels, one new born, are tethered by their owners wearing traditional headscarves. Panning shot down valley, ending on a Moorish building, possibly a church or French consulate
