Ibn Rustah, Aḥmad ibn ʻUmar active 9th century-10th century

The information on his home town of Isfahan is especially extensive and valuable. Ibn Rustah states that, while for other lands he had to depend on second-hand reports, often acquired with great difficulty and with no means of checking their veracity, for Isfahan he could use his own experience and observations or statements from others known to be reliable. Thus we have a description of the twenty districts rostaqs of Isfahan containing details not found in other geographers' works. Concerning the town itself, we learn that it was perfectly circular in shape, with a circumference of half a farsang , walls defended by a hundred towers, and four gates. His information on the non-Islamic peoples of Europe and Inner Asia makes him a useful source for these obscure regions he was even aware of the existence of the British Isles and of the Heptarchy of Anglo-Saxon England and for the prehistory of the Turks and other steppe peoples. He travelled to Novgorod with the Rus' and compiled books relating his own travels, as well as second-hand knowledge of the Khazars , Magyars , Slavs , Bulgars and other peoples.
