Roman Glass : Reflections on Cultural Change, Hardback Book

Roman Glass : Reflections on Cultural Change Hardback


Follow the way social attitudes and historical events-among them, slavery and materialism, wars and plagues-influenced how glassworking developed in the Roman world from the mid-first century B.C. to the late sixth century A.D. Woven into this story is the place of glassware in Roman everyday life, from the lady-of-the-house's cosmetic preparations each morning to the setting of table for the evening meal.

Included are two special appendices: one considers the technology of ancient glassmaking, the other summarizes ancient opinions on the properties and merits of glass.
