RE: Underwater archaeology shipwreck | Part #3 - Saint Paul

Another great article! How possible is it, that they were carrying empty bottles? Glass probably wasn't so easy to produce in 16th century? So it could be they were transporting them empty?

Sort:  

@poss Glass production was nothing new, it was produced from antiquity and even before. Venice was a huge production center of glassware you probably heard of Murano glass. So that was not the problem. There was probably something in the bottles but I did not find any paper on that subject. They probably did do any analysis on them yet.
