Arab-Persian historical and geographical works represent one large data set, on the basis of which science builds a historical picture of the countries that were in the Middle Ages in the circle of Arab culture influence. The Arab-Persian geographical literature has preserved a lot of information about the history and ethnography of many countries of the world, collected from merchants, travellers, scientists and other personalities. The information of Arab and Persian authors about Khwarazm is the most important historical source. Khwarazm is rightfully considered as one of the cultural centres of the ancient and medieval East. Various aspects of the socio-economic life of the region are covered in a number of works by Arab and Persian scientists. According to the Arab and Persian sources of the 10th century, the author studies the history of Khwarazm. The heyday of the Arab-Persian classical geographical literature falls on the 9th – 10th centuries. The authors give very accurate descriptions of Khorezm towns and villages, the distances between them, trade routes, various types of handicraft production, exported and imported goods, etc.
