These seven complete and partial drills were recovered from the Wullschleger site, 14MH301, in Marshall County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1961. The village site was occupied periodically in the Early, Middle and Late Ceramic Periods. Drills such as these, also called perforators, are sometimes are made from remnants of other tools. They are used to drill holes in softer material (hides, shell, or soft stone) than the chert itself.
