A Quantitative Analysis of Stone Features at the Buell Hill Site in Killingworth, Connecticut
This article provides an alternative approach to one of the sites discussed in Dr. Gregory Walwer's article (this volume), the Buell Hill site in Killingworth, Connecticut (also known as the Deer Lake Development Property). Using a quantitative methodology, a series of alternative hypotheses are tested against the actual distribution of stone structures at the site. It is concluded that the most likely explanation is that these structures are the result of Native American ritual activity, rather than Euro-American field clearance, wall construction, or "aesthetic enhancement".
