Today we look at some concepts in Archaeology, mainly the idea of two cultures creating similar looking technology independently of each other. We call this Independent Invention or Convergence, and it's usually what really happening when the fringe sees diffusion in cultures. We look over the concepts and look at a few examples like writing and megaliths to see how this works in real cultures.
