Sarah Jennings received a Rakow Grant for the editing and layout of her book, Vessel Glass from Beirut. This volume reported on an extensive collection of glass vessel fragments, dating from 300 B.C. to 1500 A.D., and recovered from three sites. The printing of the volume were supported by a grant from the American University of Beirut. The initial research was funded by the 1996 Rakow Grant.
Jennings was educated in Abingdon and Windsor, and has worked at the Center for Archaeology of English Heritage in Portsmouth, England since 1992. She was previously employed by the York Archaeological Trust in Ogleforth and the Passmore Edwards Museum in London. She is the author of Eighteen Centuries of Pottery from Norwich as well as many articles on pottery and glass.
