Pipe Assemblages of St. Catherines Island, GA

Author(s): Thomas Blaber

Year: 2018


Excavations over the last four decades on St. Catherines Island, GA have recovered over 200 pipe fragments and a dozen nearly complete pipes. These pipes are both historic and native made which cover a wide range of sites through occupational periods on the island. In this paper, I will present the results of recent and previous analyses and consolidate this information to explore the island-wide distribution and temporal trends of pipes on St. Catherines Island. In addition I will examine several of the nearly-complete pipes and discuss the iconography and symbolism presented.
