Justin Fornal, host of “Unexplained & Unexplored” on Discovery Channel and the Science Channel, takes us on a smokey journey into the culture, etiquette, and craft of colonial pipes.  Learn why the clay pipe is one of the most commonly found artifacts at colonial-era archaeology sites.  Justin will also explain how tobacco became so valuable in colonial Virginia that for a period of time it actually served as currency.

This event is made possible in part by a grant from Virginia Humanities.

Free but registration is required.
