Last Travels with a Tangerine

A fascinating illustrated talk by the author and presenter Tim Mackintosh-Smith on the fourteenth century Moroccan traveller who rivalled Marco Polo.


Tim Mackintosh-Smith’s first book, Yemen: Travels in Dictionary Land, won the 1998 Thomas Cook/Daily Telegraph Travel Book Award and is now regarded as a classic of Arabian description. His first two books on Ibn Battutah’s adventures in the old Islamic world and in India, Travels with a Tangerine and The Hall of a Thousand Columns, were received to huge critical acclaim. This talk coincides with the publication of the final volume of the trilogy, Landfalls. Signed copies of all three titles will be on sale there at a discount on the published prices.

Tim's journeys in search of Ibn Battutah have also been turned into a major BBC television series that has fascinated viewers round the globe.
