Glass, Alcohol and Power in Roman Iron Age Scotland
Available in Stock
Roman glass from sites in Scotland north of Hadrian’s Wall is a key material for studying the impact of Rome on Iron Age Scotland. Although only fragments remain – the complete conical jug from Turriff is a rare find – they are evidence of prestigious objects, symbolic of an elite’s privileged lifestyle, wealth and power. This volume presents a scholarly, meticulously detailed study of all such glass found on indigenous sites and dating from 1 to 400 CE.
