Hopewell platform pipe
200 BC–AD 400
Franklin, Warren County, Ohio
11.5 x 3.5 x 5 cm

This very thin, narrow-platform, black-stone pipe has a mouthpiece with a raised ridge and was probably smoked without a stem. This particular type of platform pipe is associated with the Heinisch Mound and Late Woodland culture in Ohio. In slight variations, this pipe shape persists into the Early Mississippian period and even later.
