Animation of the Day: Engraved Brass Trumpet Smoking Pipe

by Bernard K. Means, Director of the Virtual Curation Laboratory (VCL)


Today’s animation is an engraved brass trumpet smoking pipe that was made and used by the Susquehannock Indians during the 1600s A.D.  The pipe was recovered from the Eshelman site (36LA12) site in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and is within the archaeological collections of The State Museum of Pennsylvania, where it was scanned on March 7, 2012.
