dc.description.abstract Flaked glass artifacts from archaeological contexts in the Andaman Islands and several widely separated regions of Australia are described. The general problems in the identification of these kinds of artifacts are reviewed. They are considered also in the light of nineteenth century ethnohistoric records from both areas describing their use and manufacture. Similarities in their mode of manufacture are attributed to the deployment of the fundamental processes involved in flaking (knapping) behavior when similar new materials are available. KEYWORDS: hunter-gatherer technology, flaked glass, knapping, Andaman Islands, Australia.
