Archaeomagnetic dating english heritage
Archaeomagnetic evidence supports this but suggests that production was not constant over the period with a possible peak in production during the 15th century.
The absence of any archaeomagnetic dates after the mid-sixteenth century is also in accord with evidence which indicates that the production of window glass had almost ceased in England at this time, before being resumed by foreign glassmakers from Lorraine who arrived in Staffordshire in the 1580s.
