Medieval Authors about East Africa
By Pieter Derideaux
No books have appeared on this subject for many years. This is strange as a number have appeared concerning West Africa. To fill this void I try making these texts available to everybody.
When using these texts (in e.g. articles or on a website); please mention my name; I worked years on collecting - translating them. No commercial use allowed.
