Today’s animation is an anthropomorphic Susquehannock smoking pipe bowl from the Strickler (36La3) site located in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and is within the archaeological collections of The State Museum of Pennsylvania. The pipe bowl represents an individual bending over and has well defined features, including a secondary small hole in the bowl to allow another place for smoke to exit.
