3D printing helped solve an ancient musical mystery

Modern digital technology has really increasingly allowed scientists and musicians to perform with music that hasn’t been observed for thousands of years.

These diversions range from the pre-Celtic British liturgical soundscapes of Stonehenge to the music of Greece.

Thanks to Billy Ó Foghlú of National University’s School of the Pacific and Asia, we could add the list of instruments that are resurrected and Bronze Age horns.

In truth, the archaeologist found that the metal artifact long considered to function as the butt of a spear is through 3D printing the mouthpiece to an early horn.

Ó Foghlú mentioned that early horns with mouthpieces or the signs for them had been found all over Europe, based on a press statement issued by his college.

The evident lack of musical instruments as well as other artifacts as Ireland made its way from the Late Bronze Age to the Iron Age led archaeologists to call this a kind of Irish “dark period.”
