The Roman mosaic glass tesserae project
Professor Julian Henderson (Nottingham), Professor Frank Sear (University of Melbourne)
Funded by: Melbourne University and The University of Nottingham
In this project we have selected dated samples of Roman glass mosaics from sites around the Mediterranean in order to reconstruct the development of the technology and with the aim of provenancing the glass. We have selected samples from sites in Rome, Ostia, Pompeii, Carthage and Beirut.
