« back to classes page
The Moors called their Iberian territory Al-Andalus, an area comprising Gibraltar, much of what is now Spain and Portugal, and part of France. The Moors' rule stretched at times as far as modern-day Mauritania, West African countries, and the Senegal River. The Fall of Granada in 1492 saw the end of the Muslim presence in Iberia. Join us for the story from the fall of the Umayyad Dynasty to the fall of Granada. We continue the connection between certain New Mexican families and the Moors. Another film will be shown that will trace the Moorish history and its impact on the Iberian Peninsula. We will also discuss which families show the markers that are most identified with this ancient civilization.
