This stone drill was found at a Late Woodland site in Tazewell County, southwestern Virginia. Archaeologists can tell drills apart from stone projectile points used on spears or arrows because they are extra long and narrow in order to be optimized for their function. Drills were used to perforate bone and shell ornaments. (Photo enhanced)
