Mysterious stone chambers discovered in New England

Strange stone tunnels and chambers, perhaps pre-historic, have been found in Leyden, Wendell, Pelham, Montague, New Salem, Whitingham, VT and throughout New England.

Who built these structures and when? Why?

Ashfield stonemason Jim Vieira has been exploring local stone chambers for years as a member of the Northeast Antiquities Research Association, which has studied these structures for 60 years.

He describes the stone ceremonial landscape of New England, carbon-dating evidence and historical texts.

His slides document local sites and others in New England, and he discusses what they represent and who may have built them.

  1. These chambers have been known since the time of Cotton Mather who studied them in the 1600’s. Nothing new here but they are very interesting as they bear a similarity to ones in Ireland that are of Celtic origin. The American Indians never built anything in this style.
