The mysterious structure of Stonehenge may have been built as a symbol of peace and unity, according to a new theory by British researchers. During the monument's construction around 3000 B.C. to 2500 B.C., Britain's Neolithic people were becoming increasingly unified, said study leader Mike Parker Pearson of the University of Sheffield... Stonehenge's astronomical alignments suggest that it may have been a place for sun worship, or an ancient calendar... Stonehenge may have also been a burial ground, or a place of healing... Other researchers have focused on the sounds of Stonehenge. The place seems to have 'lecture-hall' acoustics, according to research released in May. One archaeologist even suggests that the setup of the stones was inspired by an acoustical effect in which two sounds from different sources seem to cancel each other out.
