Colonoware Pipe Used by an Enslaved Person at Montpelier

This is a three-dimensional rendering of a colonoware pipe bowl recovered during excavations at James Madison's Montpelier in Orange County. The pipe was found in the Stable Quarter, which housed enslaved people during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Colonoware is a low-fired, earthenware ceramic found in many archaeological sites in the American South and the Caribbean.
