Research results of the excavated and unearthed ancient glasses from more than 600 locations have been reported, and chemical composition analysis of nearly 1,000 unearthed ancient glass samples (excluding collections) has been carried out. A comprehensive introduction and analysis on them were made by us 10 years ago. However, the origin and source of ancient glasses unearthed in different periods and regions of China still need to be further analyzed and discussed.
