These five drills were collected from the Trowbridge archeological site, in Wyandotte County, and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1973. Drills were used to bore holes in softer material. The two drills on the left were possibly modified (reworked) from a dart point and a hafted alternately beveled knife. Trowbridge is a Kansas City Hopewell site from the Early Ceramic Period. During this time archeologists find evidence of houses, cultivated plants, and decorated pottery.

Date: 1-250 CE
