The Lost Forests of New England

 Not rock pile related.... or is it?

A YouTube video:

From part 3: what is he standing on?

I guess someone should go look at the southern slope of Mt Tom.

I like how all the stone walls are easily explained as being related to the Merino Sheep Craze of 1810-1845. Obviously the snake like heads found on many of them would cause the sheep to behave themselves...

I was astounded that they seem so confident the walls were built for sheep farming; in a period of thirty years. What dating technology do they have that no one else has?

I started capturing some stills myself but got distracted!

There is no question these guys are experts in interpreting the plant/landscape connections. But they are utterly blind to the stonework they are casually standing on.
