The variation seen in these results suggest that pipe-stem formula dates on sites may be due to sample biases. Data on pipe stem-bore diameters were collected from 28 sites in Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina to test the accuracy and utility of the three formula dating methods. What are Archeological Resources? Unpublished xeroxed manuscript on file, Historic St. A significant correlation be- semblages of ball clay pipe stems used in this analysis were tween the mean bore diameters of commonly provenienced corroborated by complementary analytical lines of evidence— ball-clay and Colono pipes indicated that both pipe types ex- those based on stratigraphy, terminus post quem and terminus hibit similar trends and changes.
