Summary
From the birth of Islam in the 7th century to the voyages of European exploration in the 15th, Africa was at the centre of a vibrant exchange of goods and ideas. It was an African golden age in which places like Ghana, Nubia, and Zimbabwe became the crossroads of civilisations, and where African royals, thinkers, and artists played celebrated roles in the globalised world of the Middle Ages. 'The Golden Rhinoceros' brings this unsung era marvellously to life, taking readers from the Sahara and the Nile River Valley to the Ethiopian highlands and southern Africa
