A free talk, on a fascinating subject, by one of our graduates - Medieval Glass Beads | Presentation by Dr Mags Mannion Thursday, March 9, 8pm, Bank of Ireland Theatre Glass beads have been a popular and important aspect of body ornament from earliest times. Human engagement with beads however extends far beyond their use as jewellery. Beads are known to have been used as amulets to ward off danger, to convey unspoken complex social messages, as mnemonic devices in traditional Scandinavian storytelling, as non-verbal communicators among native North Americans, and as symbolically charged objects among enslaved Americans. The study of body ornament therefore allows an insight into the social and cultural structures and beliefs of society and provides a means of exploring the ways in which individuals and societies engaged with each other. This presentation will explore the variety of colours and decorative motifs medieval artisans employed to produce an astonishing variety of uniquely individual glass beads.
