These three chipped stone tools were collected from a Middle Ceramic period archeological site in Riley County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1925. Shown from left to right are two drills and a corner notched arrow point. All are made of local Flint Hills chert. Drills were used to bore holes in materials softer than the drill itself, such as hides, shell, wood, or soft stone. The notches on the arrow point, though not well defined, aided in hafting it to the arrow shaft.

Date: 1000-1500 CE
