David Whitehouse's lecture begins with the production of beads in the 2nd millennium BC in Bohemia. He then focuses on the Middle Ages (13th century and Renaissance) and the type of glass that was being made and used in Bohemia during that time. He comments that at the end of the 13th century, glassmaking became common and glass vessels were being produced for domestic use. He believes that Germanic designs made there were then being imitated in Bohemia, with slight variations on the theme.
