    Rough Castle Roman Fort
    1926 AD
    Falkirk Museum
    1975-044-001
    Glass
    D 3.3cm x H 0.9cm x D 08cm

    Here is a green glass bead with yellow streaks and a D-shape at the cross section. The University of Bradford undertook an X-ray Fluorescence analysis of the object in 1974 and provided the following information: "Green-Yellow quoit bead... the bead is made of lead glass, and copper, iron and antimony seem to have been used as colorants. A small amound of tin was also detected; this may have been introduced as an impurity in one of the other metals. The form and composition of the bead made it unlikely to be pre-Roman date." In the museum's old register it was listed as "found near Roman fort, probably Rough Castle." It was assumed in later correspondance that it was found circa 1926.
