Bone Tools

    At San Lazaro there was ample bone available for making tools, especially after the Spanish arrived with domesticated animals. The exact use of many of the tools illustrated will forever remain a mystery, but one might speculate that some of them were used for weaving, scraping and smoothing unfired pottery vessels or perforating materials such as wood and leather. The tool at left is just under 9.5 inches long
