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 organised in conjunction with the Department of Greece & Rome and the Department of Scientific Research of the British Museum, London.
Fri 3rd to Sat 4th November 2017 at The British Museum.
2017 marks the 30th anniversary of the landmark exhibition, Glass of the Caesars, which was held in the British Museum, as well as the USA, Cologne and Rome. It inspired a generation of researchers and curators and still continues to influence our thinking on ancient glass to this day. Glass of the Caesars @ 30 will celebrate the original exhibition, and examine how our knowledge and understanding of Roman glass has changed and developed over the past 30 years. Spanning two days, there will be 25 lectures and 25 posters by international glass scholars from the UK, Europe, USA, Far East, and Australia. Space is limited to only 120 people, plus four dedicated wheelchair places, so early booking is recommended.
