Was Stonehenge designed for sound?

Stonehenge could have been designed with acoustics in mind like a Greek or Roman theatre, a study has revealed.
A team of researchers from the University of Salford spent four years studying the historic site’s acoustic properties in a bid to crack the mystery of why it was built.
While they could not confirm the exact purpose of the stones, the researchers did find the space reacted to acoustic activity in a way that would have been noticeable to the Neolithic man.

Wow, impressive stuff. I've seen the case made that many large ancient structures could have been put in place by acoustic levitation. In Tibet they supposedly can levitate boulders that way, it's been well documented but sadly no cameras have ever filmed the sacred ceremony where it's done.
Of course, this could be a hoax like so many things on the internet. dunno.gif

If I spent 4 years studying the site, I would want something to show my pay masters. I don't believe their take on the hedge. I remember reading that the type of stone used to built it, came from quite far away somewhere in Wales.

the stones came from two areas if I remember rightly. The larger stones from a few miles away and the smaller but still hefty blue stones from Wales. They tried to reenact the moving of the stones a few years ago when I was at uni in Cardiff. It was big news but they couldn't do it. I really should remember more about this but I can't. the best thing though about stone henge were the hippy parties they used to have there. I never went but man they looked and sounded awesome until the british bobbies turned up....

I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?
