Achillhenge: The Musical


Richard Brock, a classically-trained musician and computer scientist with a long interest in the archaeology of Stonehenge, is convinced that the acoustic properties of the Achill structure could yield valuable clues to musical archaeologists.
Having carried out preliminary tests on site in recent days, he is satisfied that echoes of sounds made in the centre of the mass-concrete circle create a dome of sound in much the same manner as the original Stonehenge.
…Commenting on the replica’s now-shaky future, Brock said that Mayo County Council should delay the demolition of Achill-henge until its potential contribution to scientific archaeoacoustic research can be fully explored.
