  1. Does Stonehenge Have a Song in Its Heart?

    The majestic standing stones in southern England may have formed a prehistoric xylophone. Researchers have been trying to figure out why the ancient arrangement, built more than 4,000 years ago, was sourced from a Welsh mine 200 miles away. Experts at London’s Royal College of Art recently noted that the Welsh stones ring like bells when struck with a hammer. The notion of ancients rocking the stones will no doubt strike a chord with those intrigued by Stonehenge’s mysterious origins.
