: This rimsherd is a fragment of a fairly large Dominion Thick jar that had a outward-bending rim and a flat lip. The surface is plain except for a few small, incised lines. It ranges in color from light brownish gray to very dark grayish brown. 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.
