Archaeometallurgy, Guidelines for Best Practice, published by Historic England in 2015, defines vitrification as: ‘…the change into a glassy (vitreous) state, brought about by heating a material. The temperature at which this change takes place can be reduced by the presence of fluxes, which can be accidentally or deliberately added.’
