Lincoln: Evidence for Glassworking on Flaxengate and Other Sites in the City

Author(s): Justine Bayley

Published no date

The evidence for high-lead glass-working from 9 sites is catalogued and discussed. Nearly 90% of the finds are from the Flaxengate site. Almost all the material is of Late Saxon or Saxo-Norman date (mainly 10th and 11th centuries) with a few finds re-deposited in later contexts. The collection comprises crucibles, scrap and waste glass. There are also beads and rings made of high-lead glass which may have been made in Lincoln. A few other glass finds, including coloured tesserae and smoothers, are also considered.
