holds an immense one on the borders of

field on Keith hill, where Philip's men
came to grief. There were certain places
resorted to by the Indians fur growing
their corn, and as far as my knowledge
extends they were usually on the hill
Some of the small mortars have no

places, but others remain where they
were used, fixed as the enduring bills.

mucs are of various sizes and have been
numerously found in Millbury and But

and on the highest points of land they
have been unearthed, many broken and
others in perfect condition. I have in
mind one which lies in the western part
of Millbury, weighing perhaps 75 pounds
