Lecture by Paul Devereux

This audiovisual presentation summarises 20 years of Paul Devereux's fieldwork researching sound in various ways at ancient sites in Britain, Ireland, and the Americas, as well as a discovery of rock-art related to acoustics in the Hal Saflieni hypogeum on Malta.

Devereux will also present speculative findings that suggest the possibility of the presence and use of sound at the world's most ancient temple, Gobekli Tepe.
