The Begram material is probably imported but the big blocks of blue glass at Butkara I may have been produced locally.

Hackin: Memoires de la Delegation Archeologique Francaise en Afghanistan, Recherches Arceologiques a Begram Chantier No. 2 (1937), Text and Planches (2 vols) and Nouvelles Recherches Archeologiques a Begram (ancienne Kapici) (1939-1940) Text and Planches (2 books).
