Flute Belonged to Early Humans

Bookmark and Share

New evidence shows humans ancestors from 30,000 years ago were musically proficient. Three flutes from this time period were recently recovered from a cave in Germany. One of the flutes was made from a bird bone. The other two were made of ivory but are not complete.

The scientists who reported on the findings say such discoveries indicate even early modern humans had an active and rich culture that included arts and music. Among other recent artifacts from the site was a small Venus sculpture carved from mammoth ivory.
