The Beads Of Roman And Post-Medieval Antwerpen, Belgium, Karlis Karklins, Tony Oost Jan 1992

The Beads Of Roman And Post-Medieval Antwerpen, Belgium, Karlis Karklins, Tony Oost

BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers

Excavations conducted at several sites in Antwerpen, a principal city and seaport on the Schelde River in northern Belgium, have uncovered a small but significant collection of glass beads. These range from a decorated specimen of the Roman period to tubular square- and star-sectioned beads of the 16th-17th centuries. The Post-Medieval specimens, found in the cesspits of merchants' homes, give us an idea of what Antwerpen was exporting during the early part of this period.

Beads In The Lives Of The Peoples Of Southern Togo, West Africa, Pascale Nourisson

BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers

Beads are objects of infinite diversity among the Mina-Guen of southern Togo. They accompany the people in all the material and spiritual aspects of their existence. However, while the beads serve such varied functions as ornaments, currency and emblems of wealth and prestige, they find their principal use in voodoo.

On The Date Of The Copper Age In The United States, A. Morlot

BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers

During the mid-19th century, some scholars believed that the chevron beads found in early Indian graves had been brought to North America by globe-trotting Phoenicians or representatives of some other higher European civilization. A paper on the subject published in 1862 by one of the theory's proponents is reproduced here, along with contemporary descriptions and illustrations of the beads under discussion.


Identifying Beads Used In The 19th-Century Central East Africa Trade, Karlis Karklins Jan 1992

Identifying Beads Used In The 19th-Century Central East Africa Trade, Karlis Karklins

BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers

A wide variety of glass beads poured into Central East Africa during the second half of the 19th century as explorers, missionaries and others made their way into the uncharted interior. Each kind had a name and value that, much to the chagrin of the travelers and present-day researchers, varied from one region to another. This article synthesizes what historical documentation reveals about some of the more significant beads in the trade with an eye to identifying the actual beads that are represented.
