Abstract:
Humans have utilized glass for over five thousand years. This dissertation seeks to show how, following a variety of anthropological avenues, one can come to a richer understanding of glass-working in the past. The research deals with the application of ethnoarchaeology, excavation, experimental archaeology, archaeometry and physical anthropology to an archaeological case study in an integrated manner. The case study in question is the production and distribution of glass in the Galilee region of Israel during the Byzantine period (363-640 C.E.). Remains of glass production, vessel production, and even the transportation of glass have all been excavated in the Galilee dating to this era. Integrating the data from the various anthropological sources yields a glimpse into the lives of glass-workers in antiquity.
