Abstract
Glass, until the beginning of the 18th century, was expensive and little used compared with pottery, and only sites of the very highest status are liable to yield glass dating to before around 1500. The range of types of glass from Holyrood is fairly typical for an urban site and consists of window glass, wine bottles, drinking vessels, medicine bottles and a few miscellaneous items. Most of the shards are small and occur singly. Very few items are represented by more than one shard. This is not unusual and may be related to the fact that much broken glass was re-used in historic times. In fact, this practice may be giving a falsely low impression of just how much glass was in general use.
