Description

This pipe bowl was found at a Late Woodland and Early Historic period site in Montgomery County, southwestern Virginia. It features a unique incised design of a human figure. Virginia Indians manufactured and used clay pipes beginning in the Early Woodland and continued this practice through the Early Historic period. Clay pipes were one type of object that native people traded to colonists in order to navigate relationships with them.
