Ibn Battuta was a Berber from Morocco who, in the fourteenth century, spent 30 years travelling the world.
Ibn Battuta's accounts record 117,000km of travel, more than five times that attributed to Marco Polo. He can probably be regarded as the greatest traveller of all time. In this Rare Books session, Rod Shearing and Dick Wilson will tell the story of Ibn Battuta and explore material from the collection relating to him and his journeys.
