Until the 17th century, furnaces could rarely reach and hold a temperature of 1832 degrees F. In order to melt glass with the necessary heat to fully synthesize the glass, an interim stage was added. This was a fritting process.  Therefore, one must take into account both different fuels and different batch ingredients for glass made before the 17th century. I am attaching a  bibliography on ancient glassmaking techniques.  If you are interested in obtaining materials in the librart which your library does not own, please ask your librarian to request materials from our library, ( Note: there are some materials we cannot loan or photocopy.)
