Description

This pewter pipe bowl was found at a village site in Caroline County on the northern Coastal Plain. Pewter is an alloy made of tin and lead that was manufactured by Europeans. It was made into a variety of objects and occasionally traded to Virginia Indians. Exchange of material goods was one way that people navigated relationships with colonists in the early seventeenth century. (Photo enhanced)
