Description: View of the top of the Adena Mound in Chillicothe, Ohio, before its excavation. In 1901, while Curator of Archaeology of the Ohio State Archaeological and Historical Society (now the Ohio History Connection), William C. Mills excavated the Adena Mound. He and his team of workers discovered a number of artifacts in the mound, including copper bracelets and rings, slate gorgets, spear points made from Flint Ridge flint, and many bone and shell beads. The most remarkable artifact found in the Adena Mound was the Adena effigy pipe, also known as the Adena Man, which is now recognized as the state artifact of Ohio. View on Ohio Memory.

Description: Human effigy pipe also called the Adena Man or the Adena Pipe, from the Adena culture, Early Woodland period, 500 BC-1 AD. This photograph shows the pipe being excavated from Burial 21, Adena Mound, Ross County, in 1901. The object, which measures 1.97 by 2.60 by 7.87 inches (5 by 6.6 by 20 cm), is held in the Ohio History Connection Archaeology Collection, and is now recognized as the state artifact of Ohio. Tubular pipes such as this one were common in the Adena culture (800 B.C. - A.D. 1), although effigy pipes are unusual, rendering this particular pipe very unique. View on Ohio Memory.
