The World’s Beads: An Annotated Bibliography

A much-expanded version of the Researching the World’s Beads: An Annotated Bibliography has been uploaded to the Society of Bead Researchers website. Several hundred new references have been added with the hope that the bibliography will be of use to those researching beads. The emphasis is on archaeological material but some ethnographic references are also provided.

The bibliography has been divided into nine major political-geographical groups, two specialized theme groups, and a general/miscellaneous group.  These are in the form of PDFs.

This bibliography has been compiled by Karlis Karklins; revised and updated 28 March 2014.
