A temple, burial site, place of sacrifice ... and Neolithic concert venue? The latest research on England's endlessly fascinating Stonehenge claims the site had remarkable acoustics, ideal for amplifying trace-like rhythms, and was likely used for something like ancient religious raves. A sound expert made the discovery by analyzing the acoustics in a Stonehenge computer model, reports the Daily Telegraph.
"The most interesting thing is we managed to get the whole space to resonate, almost like a wine glass will ring if you run a finger round it," he said. "While that was happening, a simple drum beat sounded incredibly dramatic. The space had real character; it felt like we had gone somewhere special."
