These bone awls were recovered during excavations at the 1998 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school in Meade County at the Lundeen site. Awls such as these are usually made from deer bone. They were used to make holes in soft material, like hides, and possibly in basket and pottery manufacturing. The site is a Middle Ceramic period camp that is part of the Wilmore Complex.

Date: 1237-1435 CE
