Dominion Thick Ceramic Rimsherd
Description: This large fragment from the rim of a Dominion Thick ceramic vessel is very thick. The fragment is made up of five pieces; a large piece is missing near the handle. It has a thick, roughly conical lug handle. The coarse, grit-tempered vessel is brown and light reddish brown in color. 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.
