Ibn Battuta (1304–1368)

Ibn Battuta

Born in Tangier, Morocco, Battuta was an extensive traveller.

His journals, written in a variety of locations in the world – spanning from the Mandé empire in present-day Mali and Guinea to Yuan dynasty China – greatly expanded geographical knowledge of the world, and his records of the cultures he encountered, particularly in the Sahara, mark him as one of the major ethnographers in modern history.
