In school,I learned that silver forks were used at the Serbian court of the " dynasty of "Nemanjic" in the 14th century, Europe did not know about this custom. My research says the following: Kitchen forks have been continuously advancing over the earlier thousand years or marginally longer than it. In any case, verifiable examinations point to their underlying foundations going back to ancient Greece. At first, they were utilized for cutting meat and generally late they showed up for feasting tables. At some point around the seventh century, the imperial courts of the Islamic Middle East began to utilize forks at the table. Later on the century, they additionally arrived at the Byzantine piece of the world, where the utilization of a fork turned into a matter of eminence among rich and honorable families. Moreover, the fork arrived in Italy through relationships made with Byzantine families. After a significant stretch of respite, the pattern resuscitated among the French when Catherine 'Medici wedded Henry II. The fork came among the English through a man named Thomas Coryatt, who met it with England in 1608. What's more, it took a long effort for the English to assume control over it, since it made a sort of social obstruction their bring forks among them .

Probably people everywhere, wherever they were, wanted progress, even in the culture of nutrition. Maybe they were tired of eating with dirty hands and washing them afterwards. And that's how intestinal infections from dirty hands were transmitted.

@Alexandoy Of course, it all depends on what he likes. Tastes are different. I think my friends at school hated math and history the most. I loved all subjects. I was interested in everything, especially chemistry.
