This drill, manufactured of Smoky Hill Silicified Chalk, was recovered during the 1987 Kansas Archeology Training Program at Hard Chief's Village. Hard Chief's village was a Kansa village site in Shawnee County. Drills, such as this one, were used to bore holes in softer materials (hides, shell, or soft stone) than the drill material itself.

Date: 1830-1847
