Multi-disciplinary exploration of the intentional (or accidental) use of certain natural sound phenomena in ancient chambers, and the possible impact on human development. We are particularly interested in the role acoustic behavior may have had in the development and design of important architecture and ritual spaces throughout the ancient western world.
The intent of this conference is to provide a forum for expanding previous conceptions and introducing new methodologies, while exploring the importance of sound in the ancient world, with focused expertise from a variety of backgrounds.
In collaboration with the University of Malta; conference 11-14 November 2010 in Malta. Venue TBA.
