Glassware Excavated at Fort Gaspereau, New Brunswick

by Jane E. Harris


Most of the glassware excavated at Fort Gaspereau, New Brunswick (1751-56) consists of bottles and a small number of tumblers. French glass of the mid-18th century is represented by three distinct bottle types and a number of non-lead glass tumblers. English glass of the same period is also present with examples of only two bottle types. No tableglass could be identified as being of English manufacture. A variety of bottles and a few tumblers, many of probable North American manufacture, indicate the limited use of the site from the mid-19th century to at least the first half of the 20th century.
