Stonehenge: A Pre-Historic Glockenspiel?

According to a recent report published in The Atlantic, Stonehenge may have been used as a "pre-historic glockenspiel".

In the study, researchers from the Royal College Of Art discovered that when struck, the Blue Stones produced musical tones, which they believed served as a bell or mode of communication. This theory also justifies the positioning of the stones - which are arranged in a circle - allowing the sound to resonate.

Prior to this discovery, late last year British archaeologists were given permission to test and experiment with the Blue Stones, and they claimed that "the stones reverberated differently from each other and gave off subtly different sounds".
