Three locations in CT from reader Brent C.

The Redding photo is the backside of the cairn forwarded last week. Forgot I took that angle.
The Kent, CT photo is new. I've asked around about it and everyone thinks it's a beehive oven but it looks like a cairn to me. Collapsed in the middle like the Redding one and on a hillside overlooking a stream. Stone walls in the area.
The Sharon pile is new too. There are 3 of them, one to the left of this pile and one higher up the hill. This location is on a western facing slope near a swamp, stone walls in the area.

I've been to Kent, CT along the Appalachian Trail and up to the top of Kent Falls. Beautiful place up there. I know there are many stone structures in that area. I also know that traditional Indian lifeways continued there much longer than most places in New England.

These old links don't work. Do you still have contact info??

And there still are Schaghticoke People living in the area, one young man in Sharon who is very interested, calling the stone mounds etc. "extremely important."
