Northeastern Massachusetts has an abundance of historic and prehistoric stone structures.  Some are familiar like stone walls, house cellars, and wells while others are unfamiliar like stone cairns, silver mines, and quarried boulders with strange tool marks.  This presentation will explore the diversity of stone structures and other stone working activity which can be found locally on conservation land, old farms, and even in your backyard.  It will focus on how to identify them, explain who built them, and discuss their purpose.
