The first University in the world was the Sankore University in Timbuktu, capital of Mali. Timbuktu was founded in the 13th century BC.
Timbuktu’s literary output was enormous, and included works covering the history of Africa and southern Europe, religion, mathematics, medicine and law. There were manuscripts detailing the movement of the stars, possible cures for malaria and remedies for menstrual pain.
Long before the European Renaissance, Timbuktu in Mali ranked high alongside great empires in Ghana and Songhai.
The University of Timbuktu in Mali was situated in a city that was already thriving in the 12th century.
The city of Timbuktu had the most universities in any nation. It was proof of the talents, creativity and ingenuity of the African people.
Timbuktu mystified European explorers for centuries. In 1824, the Paris-based Société de Géographie offered a 10 000-franc prize for the first European to find the town of Timbuktu.
Post upper body gains fueled by @adaptogenscience. This was my first time trying their “Cookie Butter” flavor and I’m hooked! It’s sooooo good. If you’ve never had cookie butter, I recommend buying a jar (as a cheat day snack ), but this protein powder definitely is a great comparison. If you know me, you know I have the biggest sweet tooth. It’s soooo yummy and blends well with water. —————————————————————— #fitness#fitfam#chicago#adaptogenscience
