The Oldest Human Instrument

From Shortformblog: “Unearthed from the Hohle Fels Cave in Germany, the above flute now stands as the oldest known human instrument. Upon initial testing, researchers believed bones found with the flute to be roughly 35,000 years old, but improved radiocarbon dating has revealed that they’re actually between 42,000 and 43,000 years old.”
