: This limestone pipe is a long, hollow cylinder that tapers slightly toward the center. The surface of the cylinder is roughened and appears to be eroded in places. The mouthpiece end flares slightly and there is a "blocking" pebble on the inside. The pipe was broken in half and has been repaired. This piece is light brownish gray in color and comes 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.
