An improvised cautery (drills, knives, and scrapers) was used by the 'Mound Builders' of Eastern Arkansas on long bones, jaws, and skulls. The indications for use of the cautery seem to have been definite organic disease of the bone, except in the case of trephinement of the skull. The cautery was applied directly to the most easily accessible portion of the affected region.
