A stone wall, 3 feet high and 6 feet long, when first viewed from the far side, turned out to be a curved wall in the shape of the letter J. A strange way to clear a field!
Was the space in the middle a deeper at one point?
|Evidence of Post Contact Settlement: Update July 19, 2016: Just returned from a trip to the UK: In the highlands of Scotland I spotted similar structures and learned that they are evidence of habitation of men who raised sheep, and were used to catch one or two particular sheep from a flock.The small flock would be driven along the wall by a Sheep Dog, and held there in a tight little group. The man would be able to grab one at a time, for shearing. So was this construct a late 8th century when the area was first settled? Has anyone seen something similar?|
