Split Lips and Broken Bottoms: Analysis of Glass Fragments from an Urban Context

Author(s): Caitlyn I Gorman; Genevieve C Cameron

Year: 2018

Summary

This paper examines the results of the chronological analysis of glass tops and bases from several sites along Main Street in St. Charles, Missouri.  Bottle fragments from both intact and disturbed contexts are used to help provide chronological context to these urban site locations.  Further comparison with diagnostic materials from the undisturbed levels, along with possible functional categories of the bottle fragments, will also be discussed relative to possible site functions.
