Site H next to Dakins Brook

See map here
Let's take a closer look at the piles from lower down the hill, below Farmer's Cliffs. I think these are Wachusett Tradition piles of about the same age and with the same basic design as the piles near Horse Hill. Here is the first one, I showed the other day. Note the two larger rocks to the right.
Here is the next pile along:Note the rock, next to the pile. There is a context for this, a rock pile with a (very vestigial) tail. Another, and now it kind of makes sense:At the edge of this group let's look at some outliers. Here is a rock pile on the ground followed by one up on a support. Not too clear in the picture is that the near pile has a small upright stone. It was black.The farther rock pile also has an upright stone, which is white:
It almost looks like an effigy. The "line" from the first pile to the second one radiates outward from the site of the piles with "tails". In the previous post (here) about this site, I mentioned that nearby there were also a couple of rectangular piles, a different style.
