My ancestors often did this to rocks that were too big to move by oxen and stone boat. They just dug a hole next to the rock that was bigger than the rock was, then pushed the rock into the hole and covered it back over.

Keep it surrounded by embers for a couple days, then suddenly douse it with quantities of the coldest water you can find. Make sure you're wearing goggles! It will quite probably crack, even shatter. Subsequent breaking it down is then much easier, if at all necessary.

It was the only one in this field cleared in 1838. It had a hole drilled into it for dynamite, but for one reason or another, was never blasted.
It took us 175 years, and ultimately 185 horse (horsepower) and one big bulldozer to get it to the edge of the field, but we do not give up easily! We are a patient family!
