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

211_toy_pipeToday’s animation is a groundstone object identified as a toy pipe.  The pipe has a clearly developed bowl but the “stem” is solid.  The toy pipe is also quite small at just over an inch in length.  It was recovered archaeologically from the McKees Rocks site by a crew of Work Projects Administration archaeologists in the 1930s. The pipe is now in the archaeological collections of The State Museum of Pennsylvania.
