Description

This smoking pipe fragment 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.

Similar to other Iroquoian effigy pipes, this pipe mimics the shape of an owl. Compare with 2016.81.8 and HD16073. This example is missing the pipe bowl and stem. Originally, it likely looked like 2016.81.2.
