|Description ||Foamhenge, a temporary structure made from polystyrene foam, at a secret location on Salisbury Plain. Used for the filming of Stonehenge - Live on Channel 5 on the evenings of 20/21 June 2005, and for a short series of documentaries for National Geographic scheduled for transmission in autumn 2005.|
|Great Idea on one level (i would love to enter the space to 'feel' the geometry) - but aren't the boys forgetting the importance of location? location ... location...|
|Have to agree with the above comment. If Stonehenge is everything we have come to believe that it is, or use to be then it is probable that it's location to the Sun and it's location on the earth are more important than anything.|
|Ummmm....sure the location might be important, if it were meant to be the real place, but as they stated it's only used for filming and that it's temporary, I don't think they are looking for accuracy, more for their show than anything.|
|This was the most silly idea! Foamhenge... why Foam?
When it was constructed they didn't use it!
Can't you see?
I can help!

|About the acoustics inside the circle:
Did anybody try to hear from above what somebody was talking while in the circle? Maybe the stones and the configuration are a natural amplifier. What if it was use for communication with some alien ship? The fact that is so huge tells me that the people were interested in being located from above. They went to great lenghts to build this colosal structure. And remember that there are concentric circles made with smaller stones (if I remember well hundreds of them) all around this place. Where aliens coming once in a while to visit the same people?

| The acoustics of a foam (99% sound absorbing) henge will be totally different to a stone (99% sound reflecting) henge. So the acoustic properties of Foamhenge would be irrelevant to the real thing.|
