Question by Museum!: What is the distinction between “Berber” and “Moor”?
I’m not sure what the difference is if there is one.
So the Imazighen (Berbers), were a different group and arrived to Magreb later than the Moors? Is that correct?
OK, so “Moor” indicates “Arab”?
Answer by Alex R
Moors were Muslim crusaders that invaded the Iberian Peninsula during the Middle Ages and were pressing towards the rest of Europe until they were driven back by Charles The Hammer Martel in France. Berbers were a group of Muslims that inhabited the coasts of Algeria and Tunisia after the Moors had moved through towards the Western Sahara and the Iberian Peninsula.
