Re: Sailing Down Africa's East Coast

Poster: "Michael Jeffrey Looney" <barderic@mailcity.com>

I'm asking this QUITE seriously, before I get flaamed for it, okay?

>I read this:
or through Timbuktu
(a powerful sub-Saharan African state for several hundred years with
Berber trade contacts)<

And I had 2 questions arise:

1.  Is that who we get the style of "berber carpets" from?
2.  What's a "Berber"??

Tristin de Roquelaure ("idiot savant")
Kingdon of Atlantia
Barony of the Windmaster's Hill
Canton of Buckston-on-Eno
"Als thai haf wryten and sayd
Haf I alle in myn Inglis layd,
In symple speechs as I couthe,
That is lightest in manne's mouthe.
Alle for the luf of symple men,
That strange Inglis cannot ken."
