Some may find this interesting.  Yet more information coming to light regarding the enigma of megalithic sites.

Ties in with the GP acoustic properties and suggests what I have always known that these sites were actively radiating energy of some kind.

Slowly but surely the truth is being revealed.

I'm struggling to see how "they make a noise" connects with your "world wide web of energy" theory Zoser.
I can see them using the stones for a bit of "flash and bang" to enhance whatever ceremony went on in Stonehenge though, and on the "pre-Romanic man was smarter then we're being told by many historians" front this news is indeed both new and worthwhile.

Some sort of contacting the dead or worship?

its when you make bells, or stone age bells, you hollow out the rock andyou bang the inside to make a noise

Think it through.  People don't go to the trouble of erecting multiple tonne blocks using different stone types and sound properties for no good reason.

These things must have had resonant qualities.  For what, why and how is what you should be thinking.

Unless they just happened upon it. After all, nobody set out to invent penicillin.

This is not an enigma, it`s called resonance frequency. It needs to be activated by an external impuls.
So no space for hippie-science here.

I still go with the theory that glaciers transported the Bluestones to the general vicinity of Stonehenge, some 30 thousand years ago, and were utilised due to their proximity to the building site.

This is the best explanation I've heard, that it was a kind of hospital, a healing centre. The key is in the bluestones and where they came from, Preseli, according to some new research.

What is most remarkable about Preseli is the plethora of springs on the hillside. Many "holy wells" have been ascribed miraculous healing powers throughout history. But Preseli's are remarkable for their number and for the dolmens, enclosures and barrows surrounding the area. More remarkable still, in front of each are bluestones, rearranged and decorated as if to create an altar and a pool. This was clearly a place of prehistoric pilgrimage, and the bluestones were thought to hold its magic.
By the agrarian revolution of the third millennium BC Stonehenge was already an important site, but its extension about 2300BC was clearly intended by its guardians to make it a major pilgrimage attraction. This needed some sensational draw, and what could be more sensational than a henge composed of the fabled Preseli bluestones, fount of a hundred holy wells? It was worth any Olympian expense.
The medieval historian Geoffrey of Monmouth told of a belief in the healing power of Stonehenge's stones, brought by Arthur's magician, Merlin, "from Ireland", where stones have long had magic properties. Geoffrey's stories are ridiculed, but his folk memory might contain a grain of truth. Could the appeal of the bluestones lie not in ancestor worship or astronomical ritual but in the power these objects were thought to hold back in Preseli?

But I have heard the resonance frequency theory idea too.

The theory i'm still leaning toward is that it was a ritual center, tied in with "woodhenge"... with the Woodhenge representing Life forces and stonehenge representing death, and the cycle of life...
After all weren't the two centers tied together by an ancient road - or at least I seem to remember reading that...

I think part healing centre and part religious site is close to the truth. Standing stones do store energy according to dowsers, and electro-magnetic detecting equipment has successfully located and recorded the strong electromagnetic signals which are emitted by the standing stones at Stonehenge. Indeed, one team at Stonehenge had a powerful force damage their equipment during recording whilst recording the harmonic frequency levels of energy lines within the site - it makes one wonder about the theories surrounding the patterned damage caused to the chullpas of Sillustani, Peru - another location where dowsers have reputedly located and recorded energy emitted by megalithic stones.

In addition, of course, Stonehenge and its environs are riddled with underground water sources - springs and wells.  Underground water is a great conductor of electromagnetic energy and as Maria Wheatley says, "....numerous underground streams radiate from beneath the Heel Stone and the Altar Stone; these streams generate magnetic power as well as producing a triad water line which water diviners are familiar with. Standing stones are rooted in the earth and they are invariably sited above energy lines or water lines. The megaliths act like batteries, continually absorbing and releasing this form of magnetic energy, which may have been used for healing purposes."

I've often wondered whether Woodhenge was not a giant field shelter for the many pilgrims that would have come to Stonehenge. The posts may have supported temporary roofs of skins or canvases when needed. If Stonehenge was a healing shelter then many pilgrims may have been bedridden or on litters. They would have to have been sheltered somewhere. Woodhenge itself is built on geo-spirals and ley lines and the wooden posts would not have absorbed the healing energy like stone would have - the ancients might have felt that the energy went to better use passing directly into people lying or sitting on the ground there. There certainly has to be a distinct reason why wood was used instead of stone as it was throughout the rest of the area.

I can't help but think that these things have been around for so long and have been used for so many different things by so many different people that trying to determine any one individual purpose is a largely pointless endeavor.
