This is a presentation of the La Tene glass ornaments found in the course of comprehensive excavation work in Spisz (Slovak Spis, German Zips) in Northern Slovakia. The project, carried out in the 1990s and in 2003, was directed by M. and O. Soják. Among the decorative glass objects there are 13 bracelet fragments from three sites and 52 beads from eight sites. The biggest collections come from Jánovce-Machalovce (9 bracelets and 38 beads) and Zehra (3 bracelets and 12 beads). The presence of such large numbers of luxury glass objects indicates the relatively high material status of the population of settlements dated LTC1/C2 to LTD. The affluence of Spisz offers a strong contrast to other regions of present-day Slovakia, where the number of comparable glass ornaments is quite small.
