Ibn Battuta - The journey of a medieval Muslim

We have run out of stock for this item.

Ibn Battuta was no ordinary traveler. Between 1325 CE when he set off and 1354 CE when he finally returned home to stay, he had visited about 40 modern countries and traveled roughly 75,000 miles, going on foot, camel, horse, wagon, boat, and even sled.

His travels took him to nearly every part of the Muslim world at the time, from Morocco to Mecca, through Persia and Iraq, down the west coast of Africa, into Russia, over to India and even across to China.

Ibn Battuta's journey gives us a fascinating window into what the world was like in the fourteenth century. With illustrations, photographs, and maps, the rich and diverse world that produced Ibn Battuta is vividly brought alive.
