Graves, CP (2001). The Window Glass of the Order of St Gilbert of Sempringham: A York-Based Study. York: Council for British Archaeology.

Author(s) from Durham


The excavations on the site of the Gilbertine priory of St. Andrew at Fishergate, York, uncovered the largest quantity of window glass from any building associated with this peculiarly English medieval monastic order. It is the only assemblage of any size to come from a modern, controlled excavation. Research on this glass provided the opportunity to study all other known assemblages of window glass associated with the Gilbertines. The book explores the relationship between the glass and the social context of its use, re-use, changes in form and deposition. Art-historical, archaeological and literary evidence is brought to bear, in conjunction with scientific analysis and experimental conservation work.The report also includes a discussion of the innovative conservation and storage solutions developed for excavated medieval window glass.
