Ibn Khaldun's house

Rue Tourbet al-Bey, Tunis medina

14th century philosopher (1322-1406) and quite possibly the 'inventor' of the social sciences. Wrote several books, the most famous being Al-Muqadimma. Studied upheaval in society, its cause and effects. This is ostensibly the house where he was born.
