Timbuktu: once a desert trading post, it grew into a golden city which gained World Heritage status in 1988


Let us know what you think and get in touch with Weekend World..

During the last 30 years some 20 libraries have been set up to house collections of books and manuscripts written by the city's ancestors. In fact, it is estimated that over 700,000 of Timbuktu's manuscripts survive from its university libraries, some dating back to the 13th Century.

This weekend author Aminatta Forna travels to the beautiful landscapes of Timbuktu in a quest to discover Africa's oldest literature and find out why its preservation matters.

Along the way, she meets the local people responsible for bringing it to world attention and questions just how different Africa might be if Timbuktu's literacy had flourished across the land.
