Archaeological excavations conducted by one of us (RVG) since 1984 at Silves’ Castle (Portugal) yielded a significant eleventh to thirteenth-century glass assemblage. A representative cross-section of different artefact types from different well-stratified contexts was selected for LA-ICP-MS analyses. We present the analytical results as a function of the different vessel types (goblets, bowls, jugs, jars and small flasks) and different colours.
