Verre et verriers pp14-15 by Majnouna Verre et verriers pp14-15 by Majnouna
For Verre et Verriers, book #11 in our Lebanese Heritage series.
The glass industry explodes during the Roman period, where the invention of blown glass (in the Lebanon, probably in Sidon) makes this material (relatively) affordable and accessible to all :D

I don't know any French (and my Latin is only useful if I had a French dictionary >>)... so these were all common uses for glass in the Roman empire? Cool! =D

Also, I love the beads on the lower right corner! I have a bunch like the black&white ones, only in different colors.

They came into use during the Roman Empire, yes, when the Phoenicians created the technology to make glass more easily and in larger quantities :)

Now I need to go to more bead history research because I wonder if the technology came from Phoenicia or India? Just like "Arabic" number notation is actually Indian... Anywho, thank you! =D
