Ancient glass workshop found in Poland

Published on February 13th, 2017 | by admin


A glass and metal workshop dating back 2,000 years has been found in south-central Poland.

There is little evidence that glass was produced and processed in prehistory in the Polish territory. This type of activity flourished only in the Middle Ages. “Therefore, our findings are very important” – emphasised leader of excavations at Mount Grojec, Dr. Tomasz Gralak from the Institute of Archaeology, University of Wroclaw.

Mount Grojec, now covered with forest, is a frequent destination for residents of ?ywiec and many tourists. “The mountain is located centrally in ?ywiec Valley and offers a great view of the area. Probably for this reason a settlement was established here more than 2.5 thousand years ago” – said Dr. Gralak.
