Medieval glass from Santarém (14th-15th centuries)

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Archaeological excavations in Santarem identified a few dozen storage pits filled with domestic garbage in the late 14th and 15th centuries. Associated to these contexts hundreds of material culture elements were found such as pottery, metals and some glass objects.
Medieval glasses can be associated to different forms such as goblets, beaker shaped vessels, and bowls and what seem to be fragments of bottles. Decorations vary from concentric lines around the object’s body to small dots and different colors.
The origin of these objects is yet under discussion since we have no information about the production of glass in medieval Santarem. However the resemblance of such glasses with Lisbon production may in fact indicate the acquisition in Portugal’s capital. Other objects are similar to European productions.
This poster is the first news of these discoveries as well as the first approach to the consumption of medieval glass in Santarem aiming to understand what type of objects were being consumed by medieval populations
