Glass is one of the first artificial materials invented by mankind, and its development has a long history. Glass production is usually locally sourced, and the glass-making process is similar in different regions, but the chemical composition is different. Ancient glass is highly susceptible to weathering by the burial environment. During the weathering process, a large number of internal elements are exchanged with environmental elements, resulting in changes in its composition ratio, which affects the correct judgment of its category. This paper has analyzed the content and correlation of its chemical components, and used principal component analysis and least squares multiple linear regression to realize the classification of glass type subclasses.
