New in IGCS - History (Archaeology):

9,000-year-old bone flutes from China

Ed./Corp.: Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), Upton, NY, USA
URL: http://www.bnl.gov/bnlweb/flutes.html
Language: English.

Self description: "Researchers in China have uncovered what might be the
oldest playable musical instrument. Their work is described in a paper
published in the September 23 issue of the scientific journal Nature.
Recent excavations at the early Neolithic site of Jiahu, located in Henan
province, China, have yielded six complete bone flutes between 7,000 and
9,000 years old. Fragments of approximately 30 other flutes were also
discovered. The flutes may be the earliest complete, playable,
tightly-dated, multinote musical instruments."

Site contents: (1) Picture of the flutes (also available: a high-resolution
JPG file of the photo [3.5 MB]); (2) Two sound files with sections from the
Chinese Folk Song Xiao Bai Cai (The Little Cabbage); (3) Link to a
Brookhaven press release with contact information etc.
