Craft, industry and trade

Anglian window glass

Period:
Early Medieval
Description:

Shards of plain, painted and stained window glass.

 

Most of this material came from a burial chapel at Whithorn, which burnt down around the year 845AD. The burning has warped and crazed some of the fragments.

 

Comparison of the glass has shown close parallels with material found at the Northumbrian monasteries of Jarrow and Monkwearmouth.
