Glass Kilns in Jezreel Valley

Glass in ancient times was a trade item of wide distribution. Now, Israeli archaeologists have found the remains of 1600 year old kilns in the Jezreel Valley, This was a prime glass production site, by which I mean, massive pieces of glass (weighing up to 10 tons) were created and then broken off and shipped elsewhere for creation of smaller glass items. Fascinating.
