: This fragment comes from a large ceramic vessel that is conical with a very small, flattened area at the bottom. The fragment is thick, coarse grit-tempered, and reddish brown in color, with one small area of dark gray on the interior surface. 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.
