A cast of a small drill from the Fisher/Fowler Mound in Arkansas. The original was made in Chalcedony and measures 1.04 inches long.   The original was acquired  by Occpaleo after a nationwide search to find classic examples of various drill types to mold and cast for study collections.   A drill of this size and type would most likely be hafted to a small spindle, and spun between the hands or with a flywheel weight to creat fine small holes in materials such as wood, bone, and shell.   Ex Bell, Engelder, and Occpaleo collections.   (Cast copyright Occpaleo 2015)
