These four drill fragments were collected from an Early Ceramic period site in Montgomery County and, in 1964 and 1972, were donated to the Kansas Historical Society. All of the drills were made of Permian chert. One drill, pink colored, was heat treated prior to knapping to improve the knapping qualities of the chert. The three drill bases may have been modified (reworked) from dart points. Drills were used to bore holes in softer material than the drill itself, such as hides, shell, wood, or soft stone.
