ABSTRACT
This article reports on how archaeological findings of glass beads at four sites in Amsterdam, Netherlands may offer some insight into early Dutch fur trading in North America where similar beads have been found. Excavations in Amsterdam revealed the Dutch glass bead industry may have started as early as 1580. Equivalent beads were found in New York and Pennsylvania indicating that the Dutch may have used them for trading with Native Americans.
