The technological advancement was already in Asia. Europe was grinding along without everything from decent roads, hospitals, schools, scientific thinking, and mathematics. When Marco Polo returned to Italy with his fabulous stories, he was considered a liar and a fantasist.

It just linked China with the West. The silk porcelain products went westward, and wools, gold, and silver went east. In culture, China also received Nestorian Christianity and Buddhism (from India) via the this Road.
