Thursday, April 15: A Brief Social History of Stone Heaps

Archaeologist Timothy Ives, will present a 200-year social history of the stone heaps commonly found in New England’s forested hills. The purpose of Ives’s program is not to help us interpret the historical origin or cultural significance of any particular stone structure. Ives does not argue that there are no Native American ceremonial stone structures in New England. Instead, he wants to introduce us to related facts, patterns, and ideas that other researchers do not seem to be willing to openly address.
