    National Museums Scotland has one of the finest collections of ancient glass in Britain. This comprehensive catalogue spans two millennia of glass-making, from the Bronze Age to the early medieval period, and explains the techniques used by ancient craftsmen. The illustrations show thousands of astonishingly well-preserved objects from around the Mediterranean, from exquisitely painted glass panels from ancient Egypt to multi-coloured Greek vases and delicate Roman perfume bottles, providing a guide for amateur collector and professional archaeologist alike.
