Just when I think all of the cairns in Western New York have been discovered more of them reveal themselves. This week Norman M. sent me a packet of information developed by David Robinson and his son Andrew. Include in the packet was a picture of a large, well stacked cairn located in Swain. David Robinson told me about this cairn years ago. He said it started his interest in research Native Archeology in Western New York.

Also documented was a perfect beehive cairn located near Andover New York. These beehive cairns are interesting. I saw one near Cinnamon Lake just East of Corning. There is at least one more cairn in the picture.

The packet also contained information on a site near Canisteo. This site included a good sized circular cairn and a large slide that may have been a collapsed cairn.

Still another site was mentioned North of Angelica. No pictures were included. 

I plan on visiting all of these sites during my April vacation.

Keep an eye out for pedestaled boulders and split-wedged ones on your April vacation.

Did you ever get to see these cairns on your April vacation?

The Tripod Rock site at Montville Township, New Jersey, consists of a man-made dolmen with a huge capstone, two big Marker Stones indicating Sunset at midsummer day, and a menhir (upright stone). It clearly is a site constructed by the megalith buil-ders of Europe when America was a colony of Egypt (2500-1200 BC). The monu-ment tells the story of the Egyptian discovery of America during the Fourth and Fifth Dynasties of the Old Kingdom. The site is dated to the Twelfth Dynasty, c.1900 BC.
