Abū Hämid al Andalusī al-Garnātī (1080-1170) is one of the most important and far-travelled Arabian historians of the Middle Ages. After studies in Alexandria and Cairo and various journeys he was living for more than twenty years (1131-1153) in Saqsīn, i.e. Itil, the former Khazar capital on the estuary of the Lower Volga, from where he travelled among the Volga Bulghars and visited the Russian principalities, the Pechenegs and Hungary. He left two books of travels, which contain apart from some miraculous stories a lot of precious informations about the nature, society, economy and culture of the visited countries.
