: This tubular pipe is made of carved and polished grayish-brown pipestone. It is flattened at the mouthpiece and approximately half of the mouthpiece end is missing. There is a chip missing from the edge of the bowl end and another small chip missing from the middle of the tube. This piece 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.
