Date: 1-1900 CE
These three artifacts were collected from an archeological site in Montgomery County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1975. The site was listed as an Early Ceramic period site, but with the inclusion of the Historic pipe it shows that people were at the site long after that time period. Shown are a small scraper made on Permian chert, a corner notched dart point made on heat treated Permian chert, and a fragment of a molded ceramic pipe bowl.

Ceramic Pipe

Ceramic Pipe
Date: Unknown
This ceramic pipe was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1962. The pipe's surface has a brown glaze that has blackened over the years, perhaps due to smoking. There is tobacco residue present in the pipe bowl's interior. When the pipe arrived in the collections of the Kansas Historical Society it either had no or had lost its provenience, its record of ownership. While this is disappointing it does not mean the pipe has lost all of its utility and value. It can still be used for teaching purposes.

Ceramic Pipe Bowl from 14SA409
Date: 1-1500 CE
This pipe bowl was recovered from the surface of a Saline County camp site and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2017. The site was occupied during the Upper Republican and Smoky Hill phases during the Early and Middle Ceramic periods. The pipe retains faint traces of dottle (tobacco residue) within the bowl. The rim of the bowl was molded so as to flare outward.

Ceramic Pipe Fragment from El Cuartelejo, 14SC1

Ceramic Pipe Fragment from El Cuartelejo, 14SC1
Date: 1650-1750 CE
This ceramic pipe fragment was recovered from the El Cuartelejo site in Scott County. The site, unique in Kansas, is the location of a seven room pueblo occupied by refugees from the Taos and Picuris pueblos in New Mexico in addition to Dismal River aspect groups (Apache). El Cuartelejo, also called the Scott County Pueblo, has been excavated and studied by many archeologists since 1898. The pipe was recovered during the 1976 Kansas Archeology Training Program. The fragment possibly represents a mouthpiece for a pipe or a fragment of a tubular style pipe called a "cloud blower."

Ceramic Pipe from the Living the Dream Site, 14CO382

Ceramic Pipe from the Living the Dream Site, 14CO382
Date: 1400-1725 CE
The clay pipe fragment was recovered from a Phase IV salvage project in 1994 at the Living the Dream archeological site by Kansas Historical Society archeologists and crew. The pipe retains faint traces of dottle (tobacco residue) within the bowl. Scratches on the outer surface may have been intentional. The site, in Cowley County, was a Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita) village that had been much impacted by modern activities.


Ceramic Pipe from the Minneapolis Site, 14OT5

Ceramic Pipe from the Minneapolis Site, 14OT5
Date: 1232-1409 CE
This ceramic pipe was recovered from excavations during the 1973 Kansas Archeology Program at the Minneapolis site in Ottawa County. The Minneapolis site was a Smoky Hill aspect village site, with this pipe being recovered from one of the many house mounds. The plain pipe was fashioned from clay. Traces of dottle (tobacco residue) remain within the pipe bowl's interior. Pipes were used during trade negotiations and to mark special occasions.


Ceramic Pipe from the Quindaro Site, 14WY314

Ceramic Pipe from the Quindaro Site, 14WY314
Date: 1850-1859
This ceramic pipe was recovered during excavations at the Quindaro townsite in 1986. It was first associated with a feature at the site that was discovered to be a late 19th to early 20th century farmstead. However, as it was recovered deeply buried in a trench the Archaeologist determined that it dated from the 1850s. The pipe has a faint mark, perhaps a maker's mark, on either side of the stem. A small amount of charcoal-like residue is at the base of the pipe bowl's interior, though there are no other signs that it had been smoked.


Ceramic Pipe from the Radio Lane Site, 14CO385

Ceramic Pipe from the Radio Lane Site, 14CO385
Date: 1400-1725 CE
This ceramic pipe fragment was excavated at the Radio Lane site in Cowley County. Incised lines and triangles surround the bowl fragment. Traces of dottle (tobacco residue) remains in the pipe bowl's interior. The site was a large Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita) village. Kansas Historical Society archeologists and crew excavated there during a Phase IV archeological investigation in 1995.


Ceramic Pipe from the Woods Site, 14CY30

Ceramic Pipe from the Woods Site, 14CY30

It was found in the Quartermaster and Subsistence Storerooms (H-12). When Fort Scott was built it was on the western military frontier, but is now located within the city limits of Fort Scott. The brass scissors were meant to rest on three "feet," one of which is now missing. The cigar cutter still opens and closes on its hinge.


Clay Pipe Fragments from Constitution Hall, 14DO321

Clay Pipe Fragments from Constitution Hall, 14DO321
Date: 1856-1900
These pipe stem and bowl fragments were recovered from Constitution Hall in Lecompton. Different colored clays were used to make the pipes. One pipe bowl had a red glaze applied before firing. Constitution Hall was constructed in 1855 and functioned in a variety of different roles. In the summer and fall of 1988 Kansas Historical Society archeologists excavated at the site, trying to trace construction history prior to renovation. The Hall was designated a National Historical Landmark and is also listed in the National Register of Historic Places for its role in the 1857 Lecompton Constitution.
