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.
