Abstract

An assemblage of glass fragments from the Tarbat monastery excavations were analysed by SEM-EDXA. Of the blue glasses, two are modern. The third is a natron-type glass of Roman type which is likely to represent re-use of early material by early medieval craftsmen. The remaining three glasses (all opaque yellow) are unambiguously consistent with early-medieval glass technology. However, it was not possible to establish whether opaque yellow glass was being made at Tarbat, or simply being worked there.
