Spectacle Frame Fragment, Melrose Abbey 3D Model
Did these glasses once belong to a monk at Melrose Abbey? This fragment made from bone was once a pair of rivet spectacles found in the Great Drain at the historic abbey.
They most likely date to the 1300s, making them one of the earliest of their kind ever found. Evidence of medieval spectacles like these is very rare.
