Tuareg nomads announce highly-anticipated sequel to their first seasonal trading post: TimbukTU!

SOURCES & Further Reading:
“Timbuktu” from UNESCO.org, “Timbuktu” from Britannica, “A Guide to Timbuktu, Mali” from National Geographic, “Timbuktu” & “The Camel Caravans of the Ancient Sahara” & “The Spread of Islam in Ancient Africa” from World History Encyclopedia.
“Medieval Towns and Trade Networks” from “The Middle Ages Around The World” by Joyce E. Salisbury, Ph.D. – “West Africa’s Golden Age” from “The African Experience from Lucy to Mandela” by Kenneth Vickery, Ph.D. – “Timbuktu, Islam’s Center by the Sahara” from “World Heritage Sites: Exploring the World’s Greatest Places” by Justin M. Jacobs, PhD
Additionally, the book “The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu” by Joshua Hammer is a well-regarded narrative history of saving the manuscripts Timbuktu from Al Qaeda in the 1980s – I haven’t personally read it, but it’s a good next step to read, and is likely available at your local library or bookstore.
