1,800 year-old glass bowl found intact

Published on May 1st, 2009 | By: pwray@ceramics.org

British officials say archeologists unearthed a Roman glass bowl at an ancient London cemetery that they believes dates from around the 2nd to 3rd century A.D. The bowl is actually a mosaic of hundreds of indented blue petals with white bordering.

Unfortunately, according to a Reuters report, the bowl was bright red when it was first uncovered, but the color has slowly faded water-saturated glass dried out.

Good thing this bowl wasn’t in my house. It would have been broken in a year.
