Embossed pipes on the web
26 February 2016
In our digitation project we photographed this month the eighteenth century embossed clay pipes. The decorated Gouda pipes are an important group in the extensive archaeological collection of the Amsterdam Pipe Museum. Up to now the archaeological collection has been only partly visible on the web, but finally we could catch up. Over two hundred pipe bowls from the heyday of the Gouda pipe production are made public by putting them on the web. Later this spring we envision to photograph the seventeenth century pipes. Together these groups form an important addition to our database for all amateur and professional archaeologists.
