Myakka City, Florida – Many laypeople may see the word “archaeoacoustics” as a typo, unaware that this intricate new field of study holds the key to understanding the world’s oldest buildings, monuments, and the mindset of the people who launched western civilization. It’s the study of sound as it relates to the ancient world, and Linda C. Eneix is a pioneer passionate about updating what we thought we knew.
A layperson’s guide to prehistory in a way never previously explored.
“I’m confident that this book brings to light new information about people who invented agriculture and launched western civilization that has never before been discovered or shared,” explains Eneix. “It’s deliberately written for people with no prior knowledge of the subject, but those who want to keep themselves at the helm of prehistory. For example, the archaeoacoustics focus of the book provides a compelling understanding of what sound and music were doing for people in the Stone Age and has big implications for how we can use them productively today.”
Continuing, “But it’s not just about archaeoacoustics, with everything explored and examined from a truly multi-disciplinary approach. You require no prior knowledge of anything to understand and become engrossed by the book – just pick it up, open up your mind and prepare to be amazed as you delve into history with more excitement and curiosity than you ever have done.”
Early reviews for the volume have been impressive. For example, Robert comments, “Wonderful... I mean full of wonder! The book was easy to read and gives you so much to think about. You can tell that the author has really actually been to the remote places and knows the people. I appreciated that the science is in there but not too hard. Might need to read this one again while listening to "Shawaza”!” S. Fox says, "Don't miss this one. Fascinating, good read, opened a new world of knowledge for me. Well researched and documented. A new adventure and opening of an untapped area of science that I never knew existed."
