Sherlock Stones Illustrations

 "Who had more time in which to construct an estimated quarter million miles of stone walls? 
             In New England, upwards of 250,000 miles of stone walls were assumed to have been built by Colonists over a time period of, oh call it 200-300 years on land continuously populated by Indigenous Cultures for 12,000 years or so...
      Who had the more "dire need" for all those fire-proof rows of stones on a Landscape that was fire-tended and most likely pretty densely populated by 1492? 
       Who in the long run would have saved labor (travelling less for a more dependable and abundant resource outcome, not burning up your firewood or all the managed resource "gardens," pruning and maintaining just one of your blueberry fields or cranberry bogs, instead of all of them at once)?  

       Who indeed was more inclined to make petroforms or geoglyphs - Stone Effigies - that resemble Great Serpents on a Sacred Cultural Landscape?"
