This is about rock piles and stone mound sites in New England. A balance is needed between keeping them secret and making them public. Also arrowheads, stone tools and other surface archaeology.
At nearly every site I've visited there has been at least one short wall of 10-20 feet long that serves no obvious purpose. Most often they connect to or are built over large boulders or low out-croppings. Although they were apparently built in many different styles, the aforementioned length and site characteristics remain similar.[Here's one] at the Miner Farm where there are three or four of them.[Here's one] at Francis Carter Preserve on former Narragansett reservation land.[Here's one] from Rockville.[Here's one] from Canonchet.
Interesting. So I'll start to look for that.
