These bone awls were recovered from an archeological site in Rice County during the 1981 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school. Awls were used as a perforating tool in soft materials, like hides, and possibly in basket and pottery manufacture. The site was a small Great Bend aspect, Little River focus grass-covered pit house that included an entryway, storage pits, post molds and a hearth. The people that inhabited Great Bend aspect sites are ancestral to the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes.

Date: 1450-1700 CE
