. Bulletin. Ethnology. 48 BUREAU OF AMERICAN ETHNOLOGY [BULL. 37. Fig. 10. Pipe from Easley mound no. 3. under and around it. Near the vertex was a clay pipe, shown in figure 10. At the center, 6 inches a])ove bottom, was a sandstone pipe which had become so friable that it fell to pieces when the earth was removed from around it. North of the center 3 feet, 18 inches above the bot- tom, was a fragment of skull, near which lay the fragments of a pot of about a pint and a half capacity. When this was deposited it contained an unfinished pipe of soft rock, now almost disintegrated, shown in figure 11, a rough piece of hematite worketl ail over with the apparent inten- tion of shaping it into a cone or a hemisphere, and a few small flint chips. Close by the pot were two well wrought flint knives or spearheads and the point of another. Near this pot and flints were upper and lower teeth, much worn, all in natural order, with crowns in contact, as if still in the mouth of a living person; but there was no trace of jawbones or of any other part of a cranium. Close to these were an unfinished granite celt, and a thin flint knife 7| inches long; these two objects undoubt- edly belonged to the same individual and were buried with him; yet the flint is a beautiful specimen of fine, delicate chip- ping, while the celt is crudely shaped and roughly pecked. There were evidently two burials, the piece of skull first found being fully 2 feet from the teeth; and all the articles mentioned may have belonged either with one or with both. In several other places around the central part of the mound were traces of burials, some indicated b.y small piles of rocks. Among them, a foot below the present top, was an extended skeleton with.
