German Music Existed before the World Began

The flutes, made from bird bone and mammoth ivory, come from a cave in southern Germany which contains early evidence for the occupation of Europe by modern humans – Homo sapiens.

Scientists used carbon dating to show that the flutes were between 42,000 and 43,000 years old.

The findings are described in the Journal of Human Evolution.

via BBC News – Earliest music instruments found.

I don’t know how that could be…. I mean, sure, the Germans make the best X (music, machines, bloggers who are also Scotch-Irish) but to do so before the world began?

So, I guess German music is like the Torah and the King James Version 1611…

Wow.
