This bone awl, made from a coyote ulna, was recovered from the Crandall site in Rice County during the 1983 Kansas Archeology Training Program. The Crandall site is a Late Ceramic period camp site occupied by Great Bend aspect (protohistoric Wichita) peoples. The awl was used to make holes in soft materials, like hides, and possibly in basket and pottery manufacturing.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
