973 AD

Cloves, ginger, pepper, and other Eastern spices are available for purchase in the
marketplace at Mainz, reports the Moorish physician-merchant lbrahim ibn Yaacub,
who has visited that city. The spices have been brought to Mainz by Jewish traveling
merchants, known as "Radanites," who have kept some international trade channels
open in the 3 centuries of conflict between the Christian and Islamic worlds. In
addition to spices, the Radanites have traded in numerous other commodities,
transporting furs, woolen cloth, Frankish swords, eunuchs,(and one wonders what
tasks they are going to serve) and white female slaves to the Orient, while returning
to Christian Europe with musk, pearls, precious stones, aloes, and spices that include
cinnamon.

Direct trade begins between Egypt and the Italian states.
