These two pipe drills were recovered from excavations at the Sharps Creek site during the 1993 Kansas Archeology Training Program. The Sharps Creek site is a Great Bend aspect village site in McPherson County. Drills were used to bore holes in softer material than the drill itself, such as hides, shell or, as with these examples, the making of pipes out of soft stone.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
