    There were plenty of Syrians in Germany during the times that the medeval guilds were trying hard to do high-end wool rugs- experts from Damascus were poached to help set up the German rug business- forgot what city, specifically- was it Augsburg that had weavers' guilds, surrounding sheep farms, and market connections all at the right time?

    Look through books of renaisance paintings and drawings- you will see African and Arab figures at dinners, at work, at business. Not as novelties either but as players on the observed scene.

    I buy and sell well trained riding mules and American Mammoth Jack Stock.
