Contest Brief

Please read the brief before you apply.

To explain how special ibn battuta's works were.

When was he born. Where was he born. Which works did he write. What is the impact of his work. Why was it special - refer to the fact there was no lonely planet guide, no google, no internet, no mobile phones, no planes - painting therefore a picture of a different time. Full name ʾAbū ʿAbd al-Lāh Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Lāh l-Lawātī ṭ-Ṭanǧī ibn Baṭūṭah, Explorer and Author of Rihlah. [login to view URL] Ib Battuta was a Berber Muslim Moroccan scholar and explorer who widely travelled the medieval world. Over a period of thirty years, Ibn Battuta visited most of the Islamic world and many non-Muslim lands, including North Africa, the Horn of Africa, West Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia and China. Near the end of his life, he dictated an account of his journeys, titled A Gift to Those Who Contemplate the Wonders of Cities and the Marvels of Travelling (Tuḥfat an-Nuẓẓār fī Gharāʾib al-Amṣār wa ʿAjāʾib al-Asfār), usually simply referred to as The Travels (الرحلة, Rihla). This account of his journeys provides a picture of medieval civilisation that is still widely consulted today.
