0026 - Neolithic pipes

(Photo copyright António Valera, Era Arqueologia)

This possible pipes made of clay are from the Late Neolithic phase of Perdigões enclosure. The one of the left had ashes inside. It is possible they were completed with "tubes" made of  hollow bones. This kind of "tubes" are known in some Iberian sites, like in Cueva de L'Or.

They were published here.
