[ June 16th 2005 ]

British and French archaeologists have unearthed a Bronze Age Egyptian glassworks at a site in Qantir-Piramesses on the eastern Nile Deltadating. The artifacts discovered at the site suggest that raw materials - quartz powder mixed with carbonate and other ingredients - was first partially reheated in recipients possibly made from recycled beer jars, Agence France-Presse reports today.

A British archaeologist from the University of Sheffield, Caroline Jackson, said the discovery was "highly significant." She said the trade of glass probably played an important role in political changes of the Near East, Middle East and Mediterranean during the late Bronze age, AFP reports.
