Brocton WW1 Army Camp, Cannock Chase Staffordshire: An Investigation of the Window Glass

Author(s): Roger Wilkes

The scientific examination and chemical analysis of glass from Brocton Camp WW1 army base located at Cannock Case in Staffordshire was carried out to compliment other research into historic window glass. The results show all the glass is soda lime silicate that is considered to be manufactured from fairly pure raw material composition. The majority of the glass was indeed window or plate glass comparable to that of late19th-century manufacture. Three samples were comparable to early 20th-century bottle glass from Hightown Castleford Yorkshire.
