6.6.7 Other Industrial Activity

It used to be thought that fragments of imported glass were transported as scrap glass to be recycled as beads or bangles (Alcock et al 1989, 216). However, it is now recognised that full glass vessels were imported, and fragments of these have been recovered at Dundurn and the King’s Seat, Dunkeld. Two glass items from Dundurn appear to be of ‘cullet’, presumably from imported vessels which were subsequently broken and then recycled. This is significant in that it indicates some degree of glass working at the site (Alcock et al 1989, 216).
