Islamic Heritage

Peace, one and all...
I'm once again waiting for the train: it's almost 6pm and I'm still at work! Today, however, I've been preparing materials for my Islamic History: the First 150 Years course which starts on Saturday. As such, I've been putting together some material on non-literary sources for the study of early Islam. In other words, I've been finding lots of photos of Islamic coins, inscriptions and archaeological stuff!
I wanted to include one of the pictures here...
The coins are from the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge
