Glass

4500 BCE

Just think, where would we be without glass? Living in much colder or darker homes, that’s for sure. Indeed, since its invention some 4,500 years ago in the Bronze Age Middle East, the use of glass became more and more widespread. By the time of the Ancient Romans, glass was no longer a luxury commodity, used by many for bottles and jewellery. Today, this world-changing material features in virtually every building and vehicle on Earth.
