I like Stonehenge. It’s all mystical and mysterious, and you can’t help but get caught up in the wonder of who put it there and how they managed to do it. And now this guy has an interesting new theory behind the arrangement of the enormous circle of stones. It’s all about sound.
According to researcher Steven Waller, the stones at Stonehenge are organized according to the way sound waves interact. I’ll let you read the article for yourself, but the gist of it is that if you go walk around in a field and two ancient Britons are playing flutes, the interactions of their sound waves make certain spots louder and others quieter. And if you close your eyes, there are certain points where the sound makes you feel like a big object is in front of you. It’s at these positions that the Stonehenge stones stand. Or something like that. It’s kind of complicated.
Of course, there have been all kinds of theories about Stonehenge through the ages. At one point people thought Merlin had the stones put there by a giant. Nowadays, a lot of people think it was the work of Druids. Others think it was aliens.
Stonehenge's mysterious origin is its biggest draw. If you like such mysteries, and if you’re going to be in London with EF College Break, I highly recommend the Stonehenge trip.
