    Re: Indian Grave Yard

    The older chiefs were supposed to like to be buried there by water is what I was told. When i found the ones I was talking about there were 5 of them. I found one in a totally different place and a relative with me really wanted to dig so we did but with the understanding that if we saw bones we were covering it back up...we dug all the rocks out and down below four feet never found anything at all just the pile of rocks. But some of the rocks were a foot or two down into the ground. The archaeologist said many of the really old ones have turned to dust and if you do not know what to look for you will dig right past them.

    Re: Indian Grave Yard

    I hate to be a naysayer but this is almost a year old. I see and saw many places in the mtns like yours even today.They are not graves in my opinion. I have hunted and dug artifacts for over 40 years with and with out archeologist. The ago of those also with just piling rocks on a body would leave little left remains. A good burial is a couple feet inder the ground. Clear the rocks and use a probe for hollow cavities.
    Please know that digging graves is illegal though,,,,,

    Re: Indian Grave Yard

    TnMountains... the pictures are from last year, but Ive only begun investigating this place. I'm not sure if the mounds hold body's, other things or just a pile of rocks, but researching the many aspects of the site it turns out to be a old Indian winter camp. "It was never farm land" one of the many things Indians done in there camps was pile rocks, if and when i do uncover a mound no one will know....and if something is found, not sure ill say much about it.....then again i might find something, or i might find nothing.......
    thanks for you feed back .... remember open mind

    Re: Indian Grave Yard

    I have found rock piles like these next to cliffs, but usually there is only one or two piles. Would these be graves? I always assumed so and I usually metal detect around them, however I have never found nothing metal in them and don't really want to disturb a grave if I don't have to. However I may dig them just to settle my curiosity; and if I see bones I will stop digging.

    Re: Indian Grave Yard

    The rock piles next tocliffs seems like a great way to waylay rivals!

    But they do seem more prevalant in the areas near cliffs and over looking streams. The ones without rocks (just piles of dirt) are usually just the remains of old trees that rootwadded up as grandpa called it.

    Re: Indian Grave Yard

    I agree guys...
    Whether something is under these rocks or not, they was placed here for some reason. I cant wait for the weather to break a bit, i plan to check this place out as soon as it does. In a book Ive been reading called "understanding treasure signs and symbols" it talks about rock piles, and having to do with Indians. quoting the author; "he tells of encountering several piles of stones that had been used by Indians as markers", exciting none the less.
    I wont know until a pile is uncovered, if i do run into a bone ill quit right then, and contact a local historian i know really well. Hope to do this soon...

    Maybe the Piles make a design? Have you mapped it?

    Re: Indian Grave Yard

    This reminds me of a KGC site. Check nearby for cloistered trees, other strangely shaped trees, and rocks. Notice anything that seems unusual or out of place. Notice the layout of the entire area. You may have to run an angle to another site close by.
