Rectangular Chambered Cairn - from a lakeshore rock pile site in Carlisle MA

The site where I saw this rock pile was described in detail earlier (click here). The structure deserves a closer look - a rectangular rock pile with a "tail" and one or more internal hollows.

For comparison, here is the first large rock pile I saw at the site, of a similar design:

I have to admit, that "tail" is an awful lot like the main pile at Apron Hill.

I've found "tails" for a platform cairn at the Oley Hills site and also in Vermont.

Lets collect the pictures in one place. I also am suspicious there may be a connection to the "Sunday" piles with retaining walls.

Is there a moss covered small standing stone at the end of the first large stone mound you saw (last one in the video)?

Not sure what you mean.

The second video shows a long stone mound, at the end of which is a moss covered stone that rises above all the others. My eye was drawn to it.

I see it, not sure it was deliberately placed, or moved later into that position.
