2017-2018 NEARA Membership Drive

Over the past two hundred years or more, as they roamed America’s northeastern woods, sharp-eyed observers have been finding enigmatic stone structures. These include elegantly constructed stone chambers, crude stone piles, unusual stone walls and circles, propped boulders, petroglyphs, and earthen or stone mounds.

NEARA was founded in 1964 to promote disciplined research exploring the origins and functions of these structures and sites, to document them, and to encourage their protection and preservation. Volunteers participate in the search for new sites and enjoy the challenge of better understanding them through the traditional lenses of history, archaeology, anthropology, and geology as well as less established fields such as archaeoastronomy, deed research, and epigraphy.
