These drills were collected from the Booth site in Comanche County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1995. Drills were used to bore holes in softer material than the drill itself, such as hides, shell, wood, or soft stone. They are made of Alibates agatized dolomite from the Canadian River valley in the Texas panhandle, suggesting either trade with people further south or travel by people living at the Booth site to the Texas panhandle. The Booth site has evidence of multiple or long term occupations that are part of the Wilmore complex (1000 - 1500 CE) in western Kansas.

Date: 1400-1499 CE
