The Association for the History of Glass is an educational charity whose aims are to advance knowledge, education and interest in the study of glass of all periods of history throughout the world.
Our members' interests include archaeology, art history, conservation, museum studies, glass collection and glass science.

We publish a biannual newsletter Glass News and organise Study Days each Spring and Autumn, usually in London.

The next meeting will be: Glass of the Caesars - 30 years on
Fri 3rd to Sat 4th November 2017 at The British Museum. (NB change of date)
The AHG in conjunction with the Dept of Greek and Roman Antiquities and the Dept of Scientific Research of the British Museum is organising this 2-day seminar to mark the 30th anniversary of the Glass of the Caesars exhibition. While the exhibition concentrated upon luxury Roman glass, this seminar will be more wide-ranging in scope while also considering how our understanding, appreciation, and presentation of Roman glass has changed over the past 30 years. The seminar is open to researchers at any stage of their career and the organisers would like to invite proposals for papers up to 20 minutes in length and poster presentations.
Please send proposals (title and short abstract up to 200 words) to Martine Newby Haspeslagh (martine@didierltd.com) by 15th March, 2017.
Details of the registration fee, advice on accommodation, possible bursaries, and a draft programme will be made available in April.
