Shown are ten of the drills that were recovered from the El Cuartelejo site in Scott County. The site, unique in Kansas, is the location of a seven room pueblo occupied by refugees from the Taos and Picuris pueblos in New Mexico in addition to Dismal River aspect groups (Apache). El Cuartelejo, also called the Scott County Pueblo, has been excavated and studied by many archeologists since 1898. These drills were recovered during the 1970 Kansas Archeology Training Program. Drills were used to bore holes in softer materials than the drill material itself, such as hides, shell, or soft stone.

Date: 1650-1750
