We often feel that people from a thousand years ago were living inside the Dark Ages. People living inside the Muslim world saw what the Egyptians, Chinese, Indians, Greek, and Romans had discovered and spent the next one thousand years adding new developments and tips. But from the 7th century onward in Muslim civilization there were amazing advances and inventions that nonetheless influence our everyday lives. Every single page is packed with information on this little-known history, but also shows how it still applies to our globe today. Inventors created marvels like the elephant water clock, explorers drew detailed maps of the world, women made scientific breakthroughs and founded universities, architects built enormous domes bigger than anywhere else on earth, astronomers mapped the stars and so significantly more! This book takes the wining formula of facts, photos, and fun, and applies it to this companion book towards the 1001 Inventions exhibit from the Foundation for Science, Technology, and Civilization.
