Discussion - Ames A, Ames B, & Monk’s Chambers
The two Ames chambers form a pair. The chambers entries face each other without lining up with each other. One opens north and the other south, this creates a set of opposites. Opposites are a form of balance. Chamber B has a spring associated with it. Chamber A does not have an associated feature.
Ames A & B chambers and Monk’s Chamber share several common characteristics including small entrances which drop down into the chamber, single capstone over a well-like shaft room, and their location on hill sides. The Monk’s chamber is about 1/2 mile from the Ames Chambers.
Starting with the Ames B chamber the chambers progressively get slightly larger. Ames A is one foot wider than Ames B. Monk’s Chamber is one foot wider than Ames A. This is merely an observation. Purpose for enlarging or downsizing is unknown. The order in which they were built is unknown.
There is a rumor of another chamber with an attached enclosure in the area. It would be interesting to find out where it is located in relation to these three chambers and to compare it building style and size with these three chambers.
