Stonehenge may have been built for acoustics
Throughout history people have often wondered, and still wonder what Stonehenge was, and why it was built. A new theory is that people misinterpreted strange sounds in caves as spirit voices, and build Stonehenge as some sort of structure to manipulate sound, probably in the hope of making contact with those spirits whose voices they thought they heard, or maybe merely hearing them more clearly.
1 Introduction to Stonehenge
A prehistoric monument in England, Stonehenge comprises a set of standing stones arranged in a ring like pattern by its human builders. It is estimated to have been built anywhere between 3000 BC and 2000 BC. Deposits containing human bone from cremations have been found that date back to as early as 3000 BC, and such deposits have been found at the site dated for a further five hundred years. This suggests that Stonehenge had its beginnings as a type of burial ground. Stonehenge has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986.
