How Africans Shaped Early Modern Europe

Saturday 10th June 10.30am-12pm

On top of the Sinatra Mountains in Lisbon, Portugal the Castelo dos Mouros (Castle of the Moors) dominates the surrounding area. The castle was built in the 8th century CE by the Moors as a religious centre and military outpost. 

The Moors ruled parts of the Iberian Peninsula (Spain/ Portugal) for over 700 years and their vibrant culture, with advancements in literature, language and learning had a profound effect on Western European cultures, sic. the European Renaissance (rebirth). 

How and why were such achievements relegated to the footnote of history?

Join the historian Onyeka as he explores how Africans shaped early modern Europe during the History in Action series at the University of Huddersfield.
