Stonehenge new theory: music to their ears.

30 10 2014

A new theory has been put forward for why Stonehenge was created. Steven Waller, an American researcher, believes that its primary purposes was not visual, but aural: along with Neolithic cave paintings, it was designed for its acoustic properties, in this case the interference the stones would cause to the volume of the music.

We have another theory, however. It is that Stonehenge was in fact built by ancient practical jokers, for no better reason than to drive future experts to distraction. One can picture them giggling to themselves as they laid false trails, safe in the knowledge that they would provide fodder for endless wild hypotheses about their true motives. Granted, it seems like a lot of bother to go to. But the fact that we are still trying to solve their riddles, thousands of years later, suggests it was worth the effort.
