Contributed by Maine State Museum

There were 743 fragments of clay tobacco pipes found at the Popham site in Phippsburg. Of the 743 fragments, 256 of them date to the 17th century. The rest of them are from the 18th and 19th century. All but three of the pipes were made in Europe out of kaolin clay. The other three post-date Fort St. George and are an entirely different type.
