I have these two sentences
Despite certain broad cultural unity developed over the last century, there was no cultural uniformity.
Despite the fact that certain wide cultural unity had developed over centuries, there was no cultural uniformity.
In both of these sentences, are both broad and wide conveying different meanings or do they convey the same meaning, or the only essential difference between these two sentences is that of structure.
I tried searching it at collins, but I didn't get the difference so I am asking here.
