Captain cook's expedition to nw America brought back a fish knife with glass beads in the handle. The glass had been manufactured in murano Venice Italy. Stuff travelled. Romans might have got to Japan - they got to China trying to find unsuccessfully the secret of silk. Greeks -Alexander - got a long way so why not?
