Some comments by Doug Schwartz about cairns on a listserv

Although I often do not agree with Doug Schwartz's emphasis on rock piles as burials, he is writing nicely here on a Archeology List [clike here for the full comment and also note the literature cited]:

"The stone cairns in the Southeast are identical to the stone cairns in
the Northeast, and the extant examples of the latter now number easily in
seven figures. Most mark Native burials..."
