Abstract

This paper builds on the few well known analyses of glass artefacts by recognising that bottle shape strongly influences glass artefact morphology in glass tool manufacture. Analysis of Aboriginally worked glass rtefacts, using similar bottles, from two regions of Western Australia show differences that cannot be attributed to regional differences in the availability of raw materials. These differences may relate to differences in long term approaches to stone tool manufacture in each of the two regions.
