Table Glass Excavated at Beaubassin, Nova Scotia

by Jane E. Harris


Approximately 200 glass objects, mostly bottles for wine, snuff or medicine, were recovered from the Acadian townsite of Beaubassin, Nova Scotia. The settlement was occupied by the French from the 1670s to about 1750, and by the British from the 1750s to the early 1800s. The French occupation is represented by fragments of bottles, tumblers and stemware bowls; the British period by bottles, a small amount of plain stemware and a decanter stopper.
