Morocco is a land rich in diversity. Bounded by two seas and a desert, cleft by mountain ranges, caravan trails, steppe-like plateaus and coastal plains, its dramatically contrasting landscape is mirrored by the people who populate it. Here, the culture of the Berbers, Arabs and Africans meets with Muslim, Jewish and Christian influences to create a colourful ethnic mix. The vibrancy of the region is reflected in the objects created by its people - from stunning ceramics and wonderful mosaics to fine wood carving and impressive jewellery. Surveying 5000 years of Morocco's cultural history, this book explores the material culture of the region as determined by its history, geography, traditions and people. Highlights from key Moroccan collections, especially photographed for this publication, are illustrated alongside fascinating essays that narrate the region's cultural development from ancient times to the present day. Including over 200 colour images, Morocco: 5000 Years of Culture offers a visually stunning account of a land and its people.
