Moil

Archaeological Evidence for Glassworking, Guidelines for Recovering, Analysing and Interpreting Evidence, published by Historic England in 2018, defines moil as: ‘The leftover top of a blown object where it was joined to the blowing iron, generally in the form of a cylindrical collar or tube of glass. This waste is diagnostic of glass blowing and is sometimes referred to as rod end cullet.’
