About This Book

Pre-European glassware is a type of artefact present on more than forty sites in Southeast Asia. Usually found in much smaller quantities than earthenware, stoneware or porcelain, this material nevertheless has drawn the curiosity of archaeologists. In its collections, the Archeological Museum at Lembah Bujang keeps thousands of glassware shards gathered during surveys and excavations conducted in the Lembah Bujang region from the 1970s to 2006. A catalogue, which includes descriptions of a selection of glass fragments, illustrated in photographs and drawings, as well as comparisons using full reference to the scholarly literature, supplemented with an analysis of chemical compositions, constitutes the main part of this book.
