Photograph taken on the Plateau of Sevastopol, looking towards St George's Monastery. In the foreground is the camp of the 4th Division with five soldiers standing on the open land in front of the tents. Other camps can be seen on the hills behind. This is one of a series of eleven photographs which create a panoramic picture of the Plateau of Sevastopol. The Siege of Sevastopol was a major component of the Crimean War, lasting from October 1854 to September 1855. The troops engaged in the siege camped in the countryside surrounding the town.
