HOLE SURFACES:

DRILLING GROVES:

A simple trick to see if a hole was drilled with a rotary drill.  Run you finger up and down the hole to feel for the groves or striations left behind.

No ancient holes examined here have such grooves.

TEXTURED WALLS:

Holes usually have textured walls.  The texture varies from hole to hole and never seems to be exactly the same.  Some holes have rather smooth walls.  Other hole walls have protrusions that we can not duplicate.

PROTRUSTIONS ON WALLS:

Some holes have protrusions extending from the hole wall.

PEACEMAKER HOLE 3:

This hole is away from the quarried area and is still in situ in good shape.  It begins as a half hole and funnels to a spot and the full star hole begins.  Heavy texturing but no sign of rotational drilling.

CONNETICUT HOLES:

The first photo by Tim MacSweeney shows a stone with a hole that is in excellent shape.  The interior is textured and the visible portion of the stone looks wet or vitrified. 

The second hole has a very coarse texture.  Neither shows any signs of rotational drilling.
