These four drills are just a few of those recovered from the 1993 Kansas Archeology Training Program at the Sharps Creek site, a Great Bend aspect village site in McPherson County. Drills were used to bore holes in a softer material. The two drills on the left are made of Smoky Hill Silicified Chalk, a type of chert that outcrops in western Kansas. The two drills on the right are of an unknown material.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
