The morning sessions will include presentations on how to appraise glass assemblages for archaeological assessments, on key reference publications and collections, on how to spot fakes and forgeries, and on useful pointers in the identification of glass of various periods. In the afternoon there will be shorter contributions on individual groups of glass that deserve to become known to a wider audience. Finally, specialists in glass of all periods will be on hand to discuss informally individual vessels and fragments brought along by delegates. We have already heard from contributors who would like to present the glass on which they have been working, or participate in the general discussion and identification sessions. If others would like to give a short presentation or bring along any glass pieces or photographs then please get in touch with Sally Cottam via email at firstname.lastname@example.org This study day has been designed to appeal to all those with an interest in ancient and historic glass and to highlight the role of the Association for the History of Glass as a network for dialogue on all aspects of the subject.Download programme
