Sheffield MA Cairn Site

Norman Muller writes in:

Somewhere in Sheffield, which is just east of Great Barrington, is a cairn site. Dennis Sears, who lives in Sheffield, has taken some photos of the cairns which I am attaching to this message. It looks like a very interesting area, wherever it is. The photo of the split boulder with the stone fill was taken by a friend of Mr. Sears, Lion Miles of Stockbridge.

Very nice stonework. Especially the 2nd photo.

Again, years later, those are still gorgeous piles.

Not only are they beautiful it is obvious what they are doing. What is the ethnographic literature telling us about it?
