Roman glass and jewelry

A couple of weeks ago I was in the south of The Netherlands and this used to be part of the Roman Empire. In the museum there they had a great collection of Roman artefacts, like glasswork, pots, and jewelry. I always like to see how almost modern the necklaces look, you would not be surprised to see them in a shop in your own town.

And glasswork, how wonderful is glass? Imagine how these things are almost 2000 years old. History comes very close when you look at these objects.
