Posted: , Author: Nufal During the mid eighteenth century, extra-long pipe stems became fashionable, measuring between 18 and 24 inches in length with a stem bore averaging 3/32 inchs. A milled or plain ring at the top of the bowl is marine 72 virgin dating service present on many pipes from the later half of the century. The latter are far less absorbent, color in blotches, and lack the smoking quality of the block carved pipe.
Pipes of this period could presumably be the last pipes used by Native Americans in Georgia. The second pictured pipe has leaf forms along the stem. A pipe cleaner can be used to dry out the bowl and, wetted with alcohol, the inner channel.
It can also be crumbled or simply folded and stuffed into a pipe. Early eighteenth century pipes favored a flat spur and some were produced with no christian dating timeline spur at all.

Because most historical archaeologists can locate a copy of Nol Humes Guide to Artifacts of Colonial America (192, figure 97) within arms reach, this is the most frequently used though admittedly simplified bowl typology.
We ask that if you have a nearly complete bowl from which a type can be determined, to use the Oswald 1975 typology, but there is also a field to record reference to another typology, should you prefer. The Archaeology of the Clay Tobacco Pipe, edited by Peter Davey, BAR International Series, 13 volumes 1979-1994.
When using bowl typologies, we also acknowledge Nol Humes caveat (194) that we suspect remains as valid today as it was 45 years ago: There is, unfortunately, a great deal that we do not yet know about the so-called evolution of bowls and stems, and there is reason to suspect that present stylistic and dating criteria have been oversimplified. For example: Atkinson, David and Adrian Oswald 1980 The Dating and Typology of Clay Pipes Bearing the Royal Arms.
Tobacco pipe makers marks appear in a variety of locations on the bowl including on the back, front, and sides, on the base, and on the sides of the spur or heel. Marks were produced by molds that left incuse (negative) or relief (raised) impressions (Oswald 19-91).
Impressed into clay tobacco pipes are bits of data that have fueled endless research avenues since the earliest days of archaeology on historic sites excavated on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.
