CT State Archaeologist begins to recognize rock pile sites

The Republican-American (newspaper) ran this article on 2/12/2012. Bob Defosses forward a copy of the article to me. [ The version at the newspaper website is pay-per-view.] Of particular interest is the remarks by the Connecticut State Archaeologist Nick Bellantoni who declares that cairns are “culturally significant.” According the article, “Bellantoni, meanwhile, said his office is looking to learn about any cairns that are discovered. "We're trying to keep a record of where these are," he said.”

Some rockpile researchers from CT might want to test this new policy by submitting / registering some cairn sites.

I'll technically be "re-submitting."
