This is a good article on how to build dry stack walls, thought it might be interesting to some folks. Has a pdf that can be saved that has more information than the article, I don't think it took a membership to get it, don't think I have one on that site.
Stone Walls That Stay Built, A master waller shares how to dry-lay stone walls that hold their ground for centuries.

Good article. I've done a fair amount of dry stone walling, and this has some information that is new to me, as well as a few different ideas than the practices I have learned, and goes into detail on some things that are seldom covered thoroughly.
