: This limestone tubular pipe is a narrow cylinder. The mouthpiece end is tapered. There are several chips missing from the edge of the bowl end. This piece is a pinkish gray, mottled with darker gray, and comes from the Adena Culture. The Adena Culture (800 B.C.- 100 A.D.), named for a mound found on the Chillicothe estate of Thomas Worthington, lived primarily in present-day Ohio and parts of Pennsylvania, Indiana, Kentucky and West Virginia. They built large effigy and burial mounds. The Adena were primarily hunter-gatherers, but began to grow squash and some weedy plants. View on Ohio Memory.
