Material History Moment:
Roman Glass beads are made from the shards of merchant vessels that carried perfume or food or other goods over 2000 years ago. These bottles were carried from Afghanistan along the Silk Road and were sometimes broken due to pillaging or accidents. Some glass bottles are still recovered from the area, but pieces that are as small as these are taken and turned into beads.
