Former curator David Whitehouse describes an ancient Egyptian furnace. This is a full-scale model of a furnace that was used for making glass at Tell el-Amarna, Egypt, nearly 3,500 years ago. The model shows half of the furnace. The lower part was constructed in a pit, with only the dome above ground level. Raw materials were melted in heat-resistant crucibles placed on ledges above the fire. The stokehole was in the other half of the furnace. The furnace was discovered by an expedition sponsored by the London-based Egypt Exploration Society.
