The First Window Glass. It Is Worth Noting That Roman Houses Did Not Have Glass Windows Up Until The First Century AD, Rather They Had Holes with Shutters with Very Few Facing The Street for Safety Reasons. These Windows were Often Not Very Transparent, Their Primary Objective Is To Only Let Light Through.
