In this publication the fingerprints and palmprints on Linear B tablets from the Palace at Knossos have been investigated. Identifications of 46 individuals have been made. It is suggested that each scribe made the relevant tablets either by himself or with help from assistants. A new method for determining hands of children has been worked out. It is shown that tablets were sometimes flattened by children.
