Over the past two hundred years or more as they roamed America’s Northeast, sharp-eyed observers have discovered and documented a vast amount of indigenous stoneworks and stone structures.  These include elegantly constructed stone chambers, carefully erected stone piles, unusual stone walls, stone circles, propped boulders, dolmens, petroglyphs, and earthen or stone mounds.  Evidence has been accumulating but in many cases the question of who built them, when, and why still remains a mystery.

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. Through its 4 annual publications and 2 annual conferences NEARA provides an open forum for the discussion and debate of the significance of such sites in respectful and civil discourse. 

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 deed research, archeoastronomy, and epigraphy

We invite you to share in this unfolding adventure of discovery by Renewing or Joining NEARA Today!
