Andrew Collins – Gobekli Tepe: Gateway to the Stars

Researcher Andrew Collins presents his theories on the reasons for the construction of Gobekli Tepe, the oldest temple on earth so far. He gives evidence for how and why these megaliths could not have been constructed by hunter-gatherers. He also  talks about the possibilities of astronomical alignment in the construction. These temples were used for shamanic purposes.


Heikki Savolainen: Electromagnetic phenomena at the Bosnian Pyramids

Heikki Savolained, sound engineer, presents information on his research at the Bosnian Pyramids. By taking measurements with electromagnetic sensors he presents his findings. This electromagnetic phenomena is related to meditation.

SBResearch: About Archaeoacoustics

International archaeoacoustics collaborative effort, SBResearch, present an introduction to what Archaeoacoustics really is and why it is worth exploring. They also talk about some of their methodologies, equipment, research and findings.

Are there differences in auralisation between the Hypogeum of Hal-Saflieni and a modern auditorium with the same RT60?

Some ancient structures have psychoacoustic effects on human brain which alter the brainwave frequency.

Our study aims to show that the differences between the acoustics of Hal-Saflieni and a modern auditorium are perceptible even though both sites may have the same reverb time. Listening tests will be designed and conducted for data collection. Population will be selected among mixed students from audio-related courses (expert listeners).


Listening tests have been conducted on an expert panel of 13 subjects. The subjects completed 10 trials of an ABX test. The samples were 30 second sine sweeps [(logarithmic) from 65 Hz to 130 Hz (1 octave as resonances were found in this region in other studies, eg: 110 Hz)] convoluted with the impulse responses of the Cathedral of St. Etienne and Hal-Saflieni hypogeum. The RT60 for St Etienne is 7.81s and Hal Saflieni is 7.78s.

Gary Evans interview on human history, particularly Egypt

Gary Evans talks about the importance of Archaeoacoustics as an emerging field, how sound could have been used by ancient civilizations to elevate consciousness with meditation. He also talk about Egypt and sheds some light on the unanswered questions we have on Egypt.
