This small Oneota culture disc pipe was found several years ago in Missouri. It dates to the Late Mississippian Period sometime between 1450 and 1650 A.D. The Oneota culture is the name given by archaeologists to several late prehistoric farming peoples of the upper Midwestern United States from Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and into Manitoba, Missouri, and Nebraska. This pipe would also have needed an additional pipe stem to smoke it. It measures 1 9/16 inches (3.9 cm) long and 1 1/2 inches (3.8 cm) wide.
