Bowl Form Pipe
Description: This bowl pipe is made from olive brown stone and flares at the rim. The body is slightly rounded and tapers to a rounded base; there is a hole on one side of the body for a pipe stem. This piece comes from Fort Ancient Culture. The Fort Ancient people were a late prehistoric culture living in southern Ohio between 1,100 and 450 years ago. Fort Ancient people were Ohio's original farmers, growing crops of corn, beans, and squash, and thrived in southern Ohio and northern Kentucky. Villages were made up of a number of circular or rectangular houses surrounding an open plaza. The Fort Ancient people continued to build small burial mounds, but gradually shifted to burials in a cemetery area with no mounds. View on Ohio Memory.
