Awesome Cairn Field & Stone Structures In Upton, MA.
I recently did some hiking with a friend in the Upton area, who showed me an awesome site adjacent to some power-lines. The infamous "Upton Chamber" isn't too far from this site either. Here are some pics from the site below:
What my friend and I believe to be an obvious Ceremonial Stone Circle. A little bit too much care and attention to detail is given for this to be modern, as well as there is no indication of any charcoal/ a fire within modern times. Not large enough for a fire, really, but probably perfect for an offering. Also the structure probably goes down to the bedrock:
A cool niche in this huge stone wall. No modern quarry marks plus the fact that this wall encloses a Native American-style cairn field makes this noteworthy of interest. Also note how some of the stones stacked into the wall at this spot are slabs of stone:

More "cairns" (Native American Stone Piles which appear in clusters):
Hmm. Not quite a split with a wedge, but something like it:
A classic Native feature. Incorporating stone walls into large erratic boulders:
A Standing-Stone at the edge of the site:
