Scope and content
Records of the International Committee on Ancient Glass (ICAG) and the British Committee on Ancient Glass (BCAG); 1950-7. The ICAG was formed in 1950 to coordinate the production of a census of extant ancient glass by country, from its origins to c. 1200, and to prepare a written survey. The study was divided into 15 areas. The BCAG (area 1 of the ICAG) was founded in Jan.1953 under the auspices of SA, and appointed Miss Dorothy Charlesworth to undertake the British census. This work was completed by Sept.1955. No publication was produced by ICAG owing to lack of funds. The BCAG ceased to meet after 1959.
