The great majority of Robin’s work over the years has been in the form of reports on glass
assemblages from excavations. These reports are normally presented as parts of the overall
excavation report which may or may not be published in a form available to the public. Many
excavation reports will only be submitted to Historic Environment Scotland for their archives.
In a number of cases glass reports will have been published, sometimes in edited form, but Robin
has not been made aware of these.

The following are examples of what has been included in a broader publication:
