This Reader is the republishing of a series of reports on the identification of glass containers and the history of the glass container industry. These publications-- several of them classics long out of print--provide a fundamental understanding of the technological evolution that allows accurate analysis of historic archaeological assemblages. Articles included come from trade publications, government reports, and newspaper accounts; topical studies by archaeologists; and some new articles intended to assist in laboratory analysis. The unifying thread in these selections is the attempt to give the reader a clearer picture of both the glass container industry and its processes that left physical traces through various ages on the surfaces of the bottles themselves.
