Pipes and pipe fragments are a very common archaeological find at the Lawson site and smaller campsites in the area. They appear in a variety of styles and sizes, some plain and functional and others displaying intricately carved geometric designs or figures. The Lawson site is a fortified 16th century Indigenous site located at the confluence of Medway River and Snake Creek. The site has been known to archaeologists since the mid-1800s and is now an Ontario designated heritage site and part of the Museum of Ontario Archaeology’s grounds.
