Timbuktu (12th century) Mali


Timbuktu (12th century) Mali
MALI
In the 12th century, Timbuktu was at the crossroads of the four most important
caravan paths supplying the Arab world, which then spanned from the Middle East
all the way to Spain. The accumulation of wealth made it one of the wealthiest
places on earth at the time. This allowed one of the first universities in the
history of humankind to be established– the celebrated Islamic university
called the Koranic Sankore, where 20,000 students studied law, medicine,
rhetoric, etc. Today, it remains with us as a powerful myth and, in this way,
resembles another Ancient Wonder, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
