Ibn Fadlan and the Land of Darkness by Ibn Fadlan ISBN 13: 9780140455076

ISBN 10: 0140455078

Paperback; London, United Kingdom: Penguin Classics, 2012-01; ISBN-13: 978-0140455076

A fascinating collection of medieval Arabic travel writing-in an important new translation. Between the ninth and fourteenth centuries, Arab explorers journeyed widely and frequently into the far north, crossing territories that now include Russia, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan. Ibn Fadla-n's chronicles of his travels are one of the most important documents from the period, and this illuminating new translation offers insight into the world of the Arab geographers and the medieval lands of the far north. Based on an expedition to the upper Volga River in 922 AD, Ibn Fadla-n and the Land of Darkness provides a rare and valuable glimpse of Viking customs, dress, table manners, religion, and sexual practices, including the only eyewitness account ever written of a Viking ship cremation.
