A flute, excavated in September 2008 from a German cave, is the oldest handmade musical instrument ever found, archaeologists said. Archaeologist Nicholas Conrad, displaying the flute at a press conference on June 24, assembled the flute from 12 pieces of griffon vulture bone scattered in the Hohle Fels cave. Conrad says the 8.6-inch flute was crafted 35,000 years ago.
