  The book that resulted from those walks is underlain by a trinity of novels that shaped our perceptions of the moors: RD Blackmore's Lorna Doone, Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles Author: William Atkins. The Moors ruled and occupied Lisbon (named “Lashbuna” by the Moors) and the rest of the country until well into the twelfth century. They were finally defeated and driven out by the forces of King Alfonso Henriques. The scene of this battle .

  This puts the term Moors in a category with other generic ethnic and racial terms. As history shows, most such terms are gradually abandoned in polite conversation and are eventually considered offensive. Even terms that carry no particular malice can, over time, be set aside for the same reason. Graham Thomas -- the complete book list.

The prey, it seems, is a greedy landowner who bulldozes people's lives like so many old barns. Detective Erskine Powell tries to find out which of the town's residents is bold enough to do the deed.

The book includes an interview with the author. The Moors were the Muslim inhabitants of the Maghreb, the Iberian Peninsula, Sicily, and Malta during the Middle Moors initially were the indigenous Maghrebine Berbers.

The name was later also applied to Arabs. Moors are not a distinct or self-defined people, and the Encyclopædia Britannica observed that "The term 'Moors' has no real ethnological value.".

Although generations of Spanish rulers have tried to expunge this era from the historical record, recent archeaology and scholarship now shed fresh. The book starts promisingly, with tales of yet another Baskerville hound, but most of the book is just Mary tramping around the moors, meeting local eccentrics, eating lots of interesting food, and getting dirty, without any clear purpose to her investigations.4/5.
