In 1324, Mansa Musa, the king of Mali, went on a four thousand mile journey to Mecca. Mansa Musa traveled in a huge caravan made of more than 60,000 people.
Since water was very scarce in the Arabian desert, many people came to drink water from the small oases, which then they traded items and ideas.
Mansa Musa created many buildings with all of his gold such as mosques, universities, and much more. This spread knowledge throughout the world.
It's my pleasure
Your university is all done, Mansa Musa. Many people will learn, thanks to you.
Along the way, Mansa Musa and his caravan traded with many people. This lead to the spread of ideas, such as tradition, culture, knowledge, and much more.
Mansa Musa met many kings and califs on his journey and presented them with gifs and traded with them. Also, when Mansa Musa meet these kings, they exchanged the ideas of their culture and kingdoms.
A gift for you, fellow king.
On his journey, Mansa Musa gave money to many people. He gave out so much money, that the gold value went down. When people saw how much gold Mansa Musa and his people had, they became interested in trade with Africa.
