Abstract and Keywords

By tracing archaeological, poetic, artistic, literary, legal, and political factors, Odd Are Berkaak investigates and discusses a number of controversies surrounding the sound environment at the world-famous prehistoric monument Stonehenge. Berkaak pieces together an understanding of how imagination—as built on subjective impressions, on the one side, and on collectively constructed cognitive schema, on the other—links the sensory experience of tranquility and the cultural category of dignity. In his quest, Berkaak touches on a number of aspects ranging from the promotion of cultural heritage to painting and literature.

Keywords: noise, silence, sonic imagination, impression, schematic cognition, historical imaginary, tranquility, dub poetry, assemblage
