Glassmaking skills were
spread thoughout Europe
by the Romans some
two thousand years ago.
There was a decline in
glassmaking when the
Roman Empire fell,
and it did not pick up
again until the Middle
Ages. Over the past 500
years there have been
major centres of glass-
making in Italy, Spain,
France and England.
More recently the
have specialised in glass,
and almost every country
in Europe has at least
one famous glassworks.
