Abstract:The majority of archaeological glasses come from Roman contexts due to the high level of glass production in this historical period. They are beads, vessels, mosaics tiles and, sometimes, glass production wastes (Palomar et al., 2009). The main composition of Roman glasses is soda lime silicate glass, which is characterized by a close and stable chemical structure against the external environment. In contrast, potash lime silicate glasses, which forms less durable chemical structures, were mainly produced in Medieval times.
