Remember watching this with a mate about 10 years ago when he was researching something. I've asked him if he still has a link to it. Those tuned resonances are mind blowing. Wasn't it so the wind would create deep tones or something?

One saw someone blowing various horns stood on top of Silbury Hill while other serious looking people standing in the car park below recorded him and took notes. It was some sort of experiment they claimed. It was hilarious somehow.

Nice one.
It is fascinating. The field of study is Archaeoacoustics, brings a new dimension to many of these ancient structures.

Reminds me of paleo-oncology, the stufy of tumours found in mummified human remains and the like:

This sounds pretty interesting too, might check the documentary out. Cheers!
