Stone Age Eyes and Ears

An article about Stonehenge in last Tuesday's New York Science Times spoke of two teachers at the Royal College of Art who "were looking to cure students of their dependence on digital material by exposing them to 'what Stone Age eyes and ears' once perceived..."  The study on the acoustical properties of the Stonehenge rocks by Paul Devereux, appeared in Time and Mind: The Journal of Archaeology, Consciousness and Culture

Sounds like a must-read.

Apparently there are such resonant rocks scattered all over the planet.  Why don't we all try to find at least one thing every day that will produce a sound we have never before experienced?
