Europe itself has the greatest linguistic and cultural diversity of the Western world.However, the common history, geography and socio-political evolution of the European continent, as well as the cultural divergences that have occured in former colonies, have resulted in the creation of a common basis for European culture that contrast (sometimes sharply) with the USA or the rest of the Western world.I have even heard Americans think that 200 years was "ancient". Europeans would tend to think that driving 100 km is quite a long way, while for Americans that would be rather near.For a European "ancient" refers to something that is typically 2,000 to 5,000 years old (related to the Antiquity, not antiques ! This is due to the much higher density of population in Europe, and the smaller size of Europe (believe it or not the EU is over twice smaller than the USA). Europe, the Americas, Australia and New Zealand) could be considered as a single "Western civilisation".'Westernness' could be defined by people who are ethnically or culturally European, in other words people of European descent or speaking a European language as their mother-tongue.
