The most difficult stones to place on the top of a stone wall are the larger stones.  But to hold the wall together you need the larger stones on the top. 
Today, with hydraulic loaders and other fancy lifting equipment, you will see the small stones on the top. 

Observation: the more difficult the physical construction, the better the quality of the work.

This wall is over 100 years old and is still perfect.
