None

Background

This is not a spiritual experience but it shows that the potential exists to obtain sound from the stones and also shows that scientifically it has been measured.

A description of the experience

Lyall Watson – The Nature of things

Between 1978 and 1982 …. The Dragon project, an informal group of scientists interested in anomalous energies … took sensitive wide band ultrasonic detectors and Geiger counters to a number of Megalithic sites and found that many produced readings that could not be explained in terms of stray radiation or random noise.

Paul Devereux – The Dragon Project [from his website]

The Dragon Project, latterly the Dragon Project Trust (DPT), was founded in 1977 in order to mount an interdisciplinary investigation into the rumour (existing in both folklore and modern anecdote) that certain prehistoric sites had unusual forces or energies associated with them. The DPT, a loose and shifting consortium of volunteers from various disciplines, conducted many years of physical monitoring at sites in the UK, and other countries. In the end, it was concluded that most stories about "energies" were likely to have no foundation in fact, and in a few cases might be due to mind states and psychological effects produced by certain locations. But hard evidence of magnetic and radiation anomalies was found at some sites, and some questionable evidence of infrared and ultrasonic effects also. In addition, it was found that the kind of locations favoured by megalith builders tended to have a higher than average incidence of unusual lightball phenomena or "earth lights".
