Latest from Nipsachuck - "SFGate: Tribe, developer battle over rock mounds/Rhode Island hills may have links to ancient culture"

Thanks to Norman Muller for the link. A San Fransico Chronicle article. [Click here]

It is too bad the rock piles were, from the start, made out to be burial mounds. It may well turn out that they are not and that leaves no room to argue that they could be for some other ceremonial purpose.

In Rhode Island, an area that is suspected to be a burial must be investigated. There is state mandate that such areas must be investigated. Whatever, the stone piles were first called, the fact remains ceremonial or burial the developer should be made to do a full investigation. Cheer the people who tried to halt the destruction, don't castigate.
