These drills were recovered from the Albert Bell site during an excavation in 1990 by Kansas Historical Society Archeologists and volunteers at the Kansas Archeological Training Program. The site, in Sheridan County, is an Upper Republican phase Middle Ceramic period house site with a radiocarbon date of 710 +/- 60 years BP. Drills such as these were used to bore holes in softer materials (hides, shell, or soft stone) than the drill material itself.

Date: 1212 CE-1400 CE
