The Drulers/Tsiionhiakwathat site reveals Iroquoian material culture through assemblages that are dominated by ceramic production, particularly in the form of domestic ware and pipes.

Only a tiny quantity of lithic material has been recovered, including a few projectile points, scrapers, drills, knives, millstones and grinders.

The array of bone tools surpasses stone implements both in number and variety; they consist of needles, awls, harpoons and beads, as well as instruments made of modified rodent teeth.
