In the 13th century, Italian monks developed a semi-spherical lens made of rock crystal and when placed on writing it magnified the letters. Towards the end of the 13th century, the first pair of glasses was created after they grounded two convex lenses and put them in wooden rings with a shaft and connected them with a rivet. The glasses we wear today came from the beginning of the 18th century which came from Benjamin Franklin and were called Franklin glasses the bifocal lens. They became widespread and more popular. Glasses were a huge innovation to the world.
I made the bifocal glasses!
Interaction between Cultures
The iPhone has spread across the globe and has changed the way we live our lives. Ideas spread faster all because of our phones and nothing will be the same.

Lots of immigrants that come to America experience assimilation. A specific example of this would be the Jewish women coming to America and learning the language and adapting to our other traditions or norms. In this case, American culture is more dominant in that area.
People all over the world drink coffee and it is part of so many people’s morning routines. Places like America or Finland adapted coffee from Ethiopia. This changed how many people live the way they do today. This all started from the beginning of the 11th century and has just developed since then.
Thanks for the coffee!

Syncretism happens a lot when dealing with religion, two different beliefs coming together and keeping some of their own but also absorbing new traditions. An example of this would be Christianity because it draws heavily from the Jewish culture because Jesus was a Jew and a lot more.
