We often think that people from a thousand years ago were living in the Dark Ages. But from the 7th Century onward in Muslim civilization there were amazing advances and inventions that still influence our everyday lives. Inventors created marvels like the elephant water clock, explorers drew detailed maps of the world, women made scientific breakthroughs and founded universities, and so much more!
