This hardcover book, "Caravans of Gold: Fragment" is an accompaniment to the Museum's exhibition of the same name. It presents recent archaeological discoveries, including rare fragments from major medieval African trading centers like Sijilmasa, Gao, and Tadmekka. These “fragments in time” are seen alongside works of art that invite us to imagine them as they once were. They are the starting point for a new understanding of the medieval past and for seeing the present in a new light.
