: These six pieces are from the base of a coarse grit-tempered, ceramic Dominion Thick pot. They have been glued together to form a flat-bottomed, inverted cone. The vessel is yellowish red, with some areas of dark gray. This piece 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.
