Experts have identified a fragment of green glass with patterns found in the ruins of a Roman Villa in the village of Chedworth, Gloucestershire (England). It turned out that he is a fragment of a bottle made in the area adjacent to the Black sea territory and used for the storage of exotic perfume. This publication reports The Guardian.
The shard was found in the summer of 2017, but still have not been able to determine the type of the bottle. The results of the analysis, which was conducted by experts from around the world showed that the glass vessel was long, had an oval shape with the sharp end. This type of bottle corresponds to the artifact in the form of fish stored in Korningsky the Museum of glass in new York. Another similar object was found in Chersonesos, in the Crimea.
The fact that the fragment was discovered in the ruins of villas in great Britain, specifies that the owner of the house was a wealthy man with high social status, since he had connections with people living in remote parts of the Roman Empire and likely had a significant impact.
