The lowland open settlement of Němčice and the oppidum of Staré Hradisko belong to the most important production and trade centres of the Late Iron Age – La Tène period in central Europe. Besides significant manufacturing activities such as coinage both sites provided large quantities of La Tène glass associated with evidence of local glass-working. This volume offers a detailed analysis of glass from both sites, including typological classification, discussing the provenance, distribution and chronology of glass objects, and assessing their significance as markers of cultural identities of the La Tène population.
