Description

These clay pipe bowl fragments were found at a site in Halifax County in the southern Piedmont. Some in the top row feature elaborate incised geometric decorations. The punctuated rows are so uniform as to suggest that they were made by rolling a rosette, a fine-toothed watch gear, across the soft clay. This is suggestive of an Early Historic period date for those bowl fragments, and is similar to the technique used to create characteristic Chesapeake Pipe bowl decorations.
