Pipes

    Of the sixty-five pipes that have been recovered at San Lazaro, fifty-eight show signs of having been smoked. Many still have burned tobacco in their bowls. Three are made of compressed volcanic ash, one is catlinite, one is sandstone, and the remaining sixty are made of fired clay. Twenty-three of the pipes are decorated in some manner. Nicotiana (tobacco) seeds were found in flotation samples taken from Room 2 in Building 1. The pipe in the top left of this photo is 2.5 inches long.
