: This rimsherd is a fragment from a fairly large, grit-tempered Dominion Thick ceramic jar. It that has a slightly outward-bending rim and a flat lip. The surface is plain with no decoration. This piece is reddish yellow 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.
