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.
Excellent work Brent -- that's great to see! Kudos to Peter and this blog for their contributions. I'm thrilled after reading that web page!It continues to amaze me that despite all we know about these sites -- despite the fact that the same features pop up from Pennsylvania to New York to Connecticut to Rhode Island to Massachusetts to Vermont and all places in between, despite the obvious patterns and similarities -- that we still have to, "convince," anyone that these are more than just the work of farmers.
I don't see there being much value to convincing people who will not go look. As for the others - get them to look, say a few things, and let it sink it. Let them chew on the information on their own, and they may come back.
I am curious about those two objects photographed on a stone.The caption says they are mentioned elsewhere, but I found nothing about them. They look like iron, but where were they found?
