Shown are five pipe drills that were recovered from excavations during the 1977 and 1978 Kansas Archeology Training Program field schools at the Tobias site in Rice County. Pipe drills, like all drills, were used to bore holes in softer materials than the drill material itself, such as soft stone for a pipe. The Tobias site is a Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita) village that had dense artifact deposits, house remains and numerous deep trash-filled storage pits. The site is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Date: 1400-1600 CE
