More details

  • Cylindrical awls appear to have been made from several different small bones from deer as well as other animals. 

    They are round in cross section and are usually 3 inches or so in length. 

    There is a joint configuration at the top of the awl and the distal end is worked to a fine point, apparently for perforating soft materials.
