http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibn_Battuta

Ibn Battuta.

From Wikipedia, the Free Encyclopedia. N.p., n.d. Web.

 

This is a secondary source because it is not written by Ibn Battuta himself so therefore it is a secondary source. I will use different parts of information from this source such as “when Ibn Battuta was born and when he died and his birthday” I think that that source was useful because it gave me a lot of information about the explorer Ibn Battuta which has helped me with this project. Yes this source is biased in some ways because it is written from a different perspective and they could have made things that Ibn did sound good or bad.

This is  a primary source because it is one of ibn battutas journals. I used different parts of this source and different bits of information that I pieced into my script. I think this is a useful source because it has a lot of information. On the website it tells you all about the different things about Ibn Battuta therefore ii would give I t a 4 out of 5. I don’t think that this source is biased befaseu it is written by Ibn Battuta so therefore it is his opinion.

This is a secondary source because it is not a source written by Ibn Battuta, it is written by somebody else and therefore it is  a secondary source. I used the different pieces of information from this source like te differernt place to which Battuta travelled and maps form this source. I think this source was useful in some ways because it had a lot of information that was useful to me in this investigation. I think this source is biased in some ways because it Is not written by Ibn Battuta himself.

This is a secondary source because Ibn Battuta himself didn’t write it. I used the distance he travelled in the first two paragraphs in our script. From what I used in this source it is a good source because it has a lot of information on Ibn Battuta. I would give it a 4 out of 5 I think this source is biased in some ways because it Is not written by Ibn Battuta himself.
