Two views of a short wall or long rock pile.

It is perhaps 10 feet long.

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.
