Artifact7

The platform pipe made of stone was commonly used throughout eastern North America. Particularly common in large burial mound sites in the Midwest, they might also be found in NH. They date from about 500 - 100 AD.

Artifact8

Pottery was used in NH from as far back as, perhaps, 3,000 years ago. This fragment is decorated with what is called "dentate stamp," impressions made with a comb-like tool. It is characteristic of the Middle Woodland period from 0 - 1,000 AD.
