Binford pipe stem dating Adult chat room my
I spent many days studying the pipes with the goal to acquire a couple of specimen pipes of each era.
The study become serious and so I learned to distinguish every small detail between different pipes.
For the translation I used the words 'stem' or 'mouthpiece' as perfect synonyms. I have had the idea for a long time to publish on the web a collection of articles about dating and history of brands of pipes, especially English makes.
In reality, the dates for the different pipe stem bores represent the specific periods of greatest popularity for those sizes, so there is a degree of over lap with all of these sizes.
Using his work, the various bowls and many bowl fragments found at a site can be used to support or refute the chronology of the site or features based on the stem bore diameters.
In it most basic sense, clay pipe bowl sizes increased throughout the seventeenth century.
For example, if one believes that the site is that of a farmer who the documents say lived at his home from 1635-1687, the median occupation date of the site based on the documents is 1661.
If one looks at the pipe stems and uses the formula and the median date is 1740, then the researcher becomes suspicious of the plausibility of the site being that specific farmers house.
