I put this together for my PhD years ago, and sent it to the lithic email discussion list. Until recently it was still available online but the site seems to have disappeared now. Fortunately I kept a copy. Here it is for anyone interested in flaked bottle glass.
Some people are astonished to find that my PhD was nothing to do with space. Just shows you it's never too late to change!

Subject: flaked glass bibliography Hi. Here is the glass bibliography. It's not exhaustive, and focuses on Australian material, but I hope it will be of some use to those who requested it. As I said to John Dockall, it seems that the two principle uses of glass flakes are woodworking, and surgery/body modification. If anyone has any references that I don't have, please let me know!
