Abstract [en]

Medieval glasses have for long been a neglected object group in archeological research in Sweden. With that in mind I choose to write about those in my essay. The aim of this paper is to bring the medieval glasses into the archaeological research. I intend to show where you can find medieval glass in Sweden and what kind of glasses have been made. I will also discuss why the archeological research is so limited when it comes to the medieval drinking glasses. The archeological sites for my analysis are Sigtuna, Stockholm, Lödöse and Skanör.

My theoretical approach is Material agency and I have looked at what role the drinking glasses could have had during the medieval period. I think my essay will show that you can find medieval glasses in trade or exchange contexts and that the medieval glasses absence in the archeological research has more to do with that previous research is poor rather than that glasses do not exist in the medieval period.
