hosts a

All Day Workshop

The History of Glass

led by John Shepherd

The workshop will examine a number of aspects of glassware and window glass over its long history. The focus, however, will be on archaeological material from the Roman period onwards and will examine the kinds of glass that normally turn up in excavations and evaluations on multi-period sites in Boroughs such as Bexley.

The day will be in three sessions.

10-12 - Glass. A presentation on its history, changes in technology and fashion with the emphasis on glass in Britain.

12-1 - lunch

1-3 - More detailed examination of key repertoires with a focus upon identifying the features that allow us to distinguish one datable fragment from another. This will be conducted by means of a presentation and handling session.

3-3.30 - Break

3.30-4.30 - Discussion and examination of examples brought in for identification (hopefully, by the attendees).


John Shepherd

used to work at he Museum of London. He was there for 20 years, leaving in early 2005 after curating the Grimes archive and setting up the LAARC. He is now a freelance consultant, working with museums and trusts, commercial units and local societies. His specialism, though, is the study of glass, especially archaeological material in this country from the Roman period up to AD1850.

Date: Saturday 25 February 2012 - 10am - 4.30pm

Cost: £20 (members £15)

To be held at Bexley-Sidcup Conservative Club
