Square Lipped Pipe Bowls

Title

Square Lipped Pipe Bowls

Description

These clay pipe fragments are of European manufacture and style, with square lips forming the bowls. They were found at an Indian village site in Roanoke County in the Blue Ridge. Virginia Indians obtained them from colonists during trade exchanges, and they were used alongside other pipes of Native manufacture. Tobacco smoking was a cultural practice that Virginia Indians and colonists had in common, although the practices probably carried different meanings for each group. (Photo enhanced)
