Landscape & Perception

The source of the Stonehenge bluestones is widely accepted to be the Preseli Hills, in Pembrokeshire, SW Wales, a heritage site seldom studied but rich in sonic phenomena, notably the lithophones that litter Carn Menyn, the main rocky outcrop on the Preseli range.

A central premise of the Landscape & Perception project is to question the hierarchy between vision and sound in the building of prehistoric monuments, in particular the sacred sites of Avebury and Stonehenge, whose acoustic dimensions have never been properly assessed.

Supported by the Royal College of Art, Paul Devereux and Jon Wozencroft present this updated report on their findings. The website is designed by Rebels in Control and represents five year’s worth of research into these two “power spots”.
