This U Chicago catalog is really nice!
I noticed that there was no mention of Linear B. But perhaps that is because Crete is not considered "Oriental." :)
A fantastic book on Linear B (if anyone named Henry is interested) is The Riddle of the Labryinth: The quest to crack an ancient code by Margalit Fox, about how they decoded the writing in the 1950s (or thereabouts?)
The book is a special tribute to Alice Kober who did most of the heavy lifting, but was not given proper credit (until this book of course!) It's wonderfully written and reads almost like a detective novel. A nice break from dense reading... if you need a break.
For those not familiar with Linear B it is a syllabic script.
I noticed that Margalit Fox also wrote a book called, "Talking Hands: What sign language reveals about the mind."
And yes, Andy, Linear B would supply you evidence about administrative purposes! :)
