Glass production in Antiquity

Principal Researcher: Andrea Ceglia (Vrije Universiteit Brussel)

UV-VIS-NIR, Raman Spectroscopy, SEM-EDX and XRF will be used for the inter-disciplinary study of ancient glass from different areas of the Eastern Mediterranean, combining theoretical models, historical texts and analytical datasets. This interdisciplinary approach aims at providing a substantial corpus of information related to glass production technology and trade in antiquity.
