: This ceramic, tubular pipe is generally straight but flares out at the mouthpiece. It is mainly brown in color with some areas of gray, which are a result of the firing process. The pipe was broken in half but has been repaired, although there are small parts missing along the break. There are some additional chips missing around the edge of the bowl. This pipe is from 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.
