A part of the collection presented in the MCDAV results from a deposit granted by three owners (the SASTB association or Archaeological Society of the Ségala Tarnais de Blaye -les-Mines; Mr. Jean Jacques Laurens; Mr. Alain Assié) managed by the Association of local authorities of Carmaux.
Compound of a set of varied objects. It is composed of fragments of glass objects, metal and ceramic dating Gallo-Roman time and fragments of objects of medieval time, all found in the North of the department near Carmaux, near Albi and near Cordes sur ciel. This important collection testifies of the reality of a presence of glass objects (bound to the production and to the business dating, the 1st century A.C. (Gaul Narbonnaise) then of medieval time (first mention of an oven with glass in 1320 in a report of demarcation of the forest of Ramondens, in the Black Mountain: Lisa Caliste source).
The presence of objects, fragments and glass objects (or fragments), ceramic objects dating Gallo-Roman time (some objects in metal also) allow us, any kept(guarded) proportions, to contextualize the fragments and glass objects but also to have an idea of the different styles practiced in this time.
