Description

This smoking pipe was recovered from the Thomson-Walker archaeological site in Simcoe County, Ontario. Occupied during the second quarter of the seventeenth century, the site was a palisaded Huron-Wendat village containing 20-30 longhouses. This general style is known as the "collared," "coronet," or "castellated" type; the bowls on these pipes resemble Iroquoian castellated pottery.
