These two small drills were recovered from excavations at the Nulik site in Sumner County. This camp site was occupied in the Middle Ceramic Period. Drills were used to bore holes into softer material. The larger drill got its pink color from having the material heat-treated prior to knapping it into its drill shape.

Date: 1000 CE-1500 CE
