A university professor who is an expert in sound and a part-time DJ believes Stonehenge was created as a dance arena for listening to "trance-style" music. The monument has baffled archaeologists who have argued for decades over the stone circle's 5,000-year history but academic Rupert Till believes he has solved the riddle by suggesting it may have been used for ancient raves.

Mr Till, an expert in acoustics and music technology at Huddersfield University, West Yorks., believes the standing stones had the ideal acoustics to amplify a "repetitive trance rhythm".

The original Stonehenge probably had a "very pleasant, almost concert-like acoustic" that our ancestors slowly perfected over many generations

Wouldnt it be hilarious if this was correct, and they did use it for some ancient chanting ritual thing? It is probably just some religious monument tho, meant for nothing else but to stand there. i mean all over the world, differant cultures honour their gods by constructing these bizarre things. I think university people get paid too much to come up with silly things like this. I wonder why they only built one though?

I'd say this is the most embarassingly ridiculous theory yet

Chuckle. The AAAS April Fool's joke was apparently somewhat mistaken by some. "Nigel Tufnel" (amongst numerous other discrepancies) may be a bit of a clue.

This does bring into perspective certain media outlets.
