Adena Plain Ceramic Rimsherd
Description: This rim from an Adena Plain vessel is straight and has an added band of clay around the upper edge. A small portion of the body is extant; it is plain and undecorated. The sherd is dark grayish brown 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.
