Proceedings of the conference 1001 Inventions: Muslim Heritage in Our World organised by FSTC, London, 25-26 May 2010. Professor Emilia Calvo, a member of the Barcelona Team working since decades on the history of Islamic science, especially in the Andalus, presents a lively picture of the research carried on in Barcelona by five generations of scholars since Millàs Vallicrosa. The outcome of such a long term investigation produced a large array of publications and gained the Spanish scholars of the Barcelona Team a worldwide recognition and respect in the field of Islamic studies at large and in the specialised area of history of science in particular.
