Bradford W. Andrews is an anthropological archaeologist with Mesoamerican and North American research interests. He received his Ph.D. from The Pennsylvania State University in 1999. He approaches his subject matter from an ecological and economic perspective. His specific research interests include the comparative investigation of social complexity, political economy, craft production, and cultural ecology. His primary methodological specialty is the study of flaked stone tool production. This specialty provides a useful means for reconstructing ancient economic systems, which can be used to make inferences about other aspects of society including social organization and ideology. He has published an edited volume with Kenneth Hirth (Pathways to Prismatic Blades) and a number of peer-reviewed journal articles and chapters, primarily on Central Mexico and Western North America.
