    When starting a fire with a bow drill you need a rock with a dimple to stabilize the drill at the top. The rock acts like a bearing. In Boy Scouts we called that rock a "thunderbird". Not sure that's what it is but it could be. It might just be an unfinished clay bead. Gary

    I like Gary's idea...I had forgotten about that, but at my age, that's not surprising.

    Cool piece, regardless!

    Iíve found several like these in bluff shelters. They are bow drill stones for starting a fire. It has several marks where it looks like itís slid off while drilling to get a hot ember. Good find. Little things like these are cool to find. I found mine in an area where there were fires, and also found a few in an area where broken pottery was found. Some of them have been found in two pieces, where they drilled too deep, and cracked them.
