How I Made A Record With 30,000-Year-Old Bone Flutes

    Press/Media: Expert Comment

    Description

    Rupert Till writes on the archaeology of sound: 'The kind of instruments that people were rebuilding included quite a wide range. The oldest are flutes made of vulture or swan bone, or sometimes mammoth ivory. Those are up to 43,000 years old, the oldest human musical instruments that have ever been found, even older than the Isturitz examples.'
