So, a couple years ago a few archaeologist came to my neck of the woods to excavate an old Inuit (i.e. Eskimo) camp site. They spent the summer digging and then before they left, they had a show and tell of what they found. Amongst the artifacts were a couple that I found very interesting and I thought I would share a couple of pics. This is a clay pipe bowl that was most likely traded to the Inuit by Hudson's Bay Company traders. I was blown away when I saw the Masonic imagery of the compass and square! This next one (that my Dad is so proudly showing off ), is what the archaeologists claimed was an Inuit hand-carved pipe. I'm not so sure, as I can't for the life of me figure out what it was made of and where in the material may have come from. Any ideas? At any rate the colour was absolutely stunning! Do any of you guys have pics of old pipes from archaeological digs? If so, I would love to see them!
