Example text

When excavated or studied in museum collections, the attribution is more often than not asserted but not demonstrated. Though I had earlier dismissed Orser’s designation of these pipes as the “mystical pipes of Palmares” because they were not excavated (Allen, 2001), I have since returned to them to determine whether they could provide temporal and perhaps stylistic elements that might prove useful in the study of the region. The eventual utility of affirming the association to Palmarino manufacture is apparent.

The pipes were discovered by locals and kept in a museum called Museu Maria Mariá, named after an illustrious figure of the Sarmento family of União dos Palmares. The pipes were reportedly found on the Serra da Barriga (Paulo Sarmento, personal communication), although experience in working in this area has shown that the Serra da Barriga refers not only to the hill itself but to the surrounding area. The pipes are manufactured of clay with a very fine-grained temper, and most are formed in molds.

Although the Serra is currently populated, with about a dozen households, locales with no evidence of pre-twentieth century occupation were not considered archaeological sites. Initiated in 1992, archaeological research on the Serra da Barriga sought to uncover the Palmarino past, though interpretation of the record was subsequently set aside in lieu of discourse on the social and political importance and ramifications of the process of doing archaeology of Palmares (see Allen, 2001, 2006, 2010).
