La musique préhistorique commence avec la Préhistoire quelque part à la fin de l'échelle des temps géologiques et se termine avec l'apparition des musiques de l'Antiquité dans différentes parties du monde. Since then, this artifact, called the Divje Babe flute, has gained in plausibility a musical instrument.

If a match had been found, it could have been cited as prima facie evidence that the holes were animal-made. 2011. [8] Whether it is actually a flute created by Neanderthals is a subject of debate. I'll be delighted if we can ever feel more confident about the Divje Babe artifact being a flute, but at present, I think we must agree the jury's still out. This was noted by Turk in his book and was also noted from the opposing hypothesis holders Nowell and Chase in their article in the August/October 1998 issue of Current Anthropology. Divje babe so najstarejše znano arheološko najdišče v Sloveniji. Divje babe (dt. Therefore it cannot be random. These bones are preserved today at the National History Museum of Slovenia as well. The artifact known as the Divje Babe flute, discovered in Slovenia in 1995, has been claimed as the oldest flute, though this has been disputed. The Neanderthal Flute, found in the cave of Divje Babe in Slovenia, is thought to date back at least 50,000 years, making it the oldest known musical instrument in the world. blizu Cerkna in je dostopna za zaključene skupine obiskovalcev. This discovery represents pivotal evidence that the Neanderthal was, like us, a fully developed spiritual being, capable of sublime artistic creation such as music. [1], In 1995, archeologist Ivan Turk of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts found the approximately 43,100-year-old[13][14] cave bear femur at the Divje Babe site near a Mousterian hearth. [1] Despite alternative hypotheses suggesting it was formed by animals,[2][3][4][5] the artifact remains on prominent public display in the National Museum of Slovenia in Ljubljana as a Neanderthal flute.  info@visitcerkno.si Ignoring the probability of the alignment of the holes, D'Errico's interpretation was that it was possible for the holes to have been made by an animal, and they concluded that of the available options this was the most likely. The Divje Babe flute, discovered in a cave in Slovenia in 1995, has long been heralded as the oldest musical instrument ever discovered. In his personal research and correspondence about it posted on the web, it's clear D'Errico insisted on ignoring the probability of the alignment of the holes and, even after having analyzed the artifact firsthand, claimed that "the presence of two or possibly three perforations on the suggested flute cannot therefore be considered as evidence of human manufacture, as this is a common feature in the studied sample."[25]. The authors argue that the instrument encompassed a range of two and a half octaves, which can be extended to three octaves by overblowing. This famous discovery happened in 1995, when during the excavations performed by Ivan Turk and Janez Dirjec from the Institute of Archaeology ZRC SAZU, the world’s oldest musical instrument was discovered in the Mousterian layer. [5], D'Errico made an analysis of the artifact in comparison to cave-bear bone accumulations where no hominid presence was known. /Photo: Tomaž Lauko The flute is kept by the National Museum of Ljubljana. It is broken at both ends, with two complete holes and what may be the incomplete remains of one hole at each end, meaning that the bone may have had four or more holes before being damaged. The Divje Babe Flute is a cave bear femur pierced by spaced holes that was found in 1995 at the Divje Babe archeological park located near Cerkno in northwestern Slovenia.It has been suggested that it was made by Neanderthals as a form of musical instrument, its hole spacing and alignment leading to its being labeled a "Neanderthal flute." The manufacture by Neanderthals "is reliably proven" and its significance in the understanding of their capabilities and the development of music and speech is secure.[10]. "Neandertalska piščal iz Divjih bab I: stara in nova spoznanja", "Neanderthal Flute from Divje babe I: Old and New Findings" (English & Slovenian). La préhistoire de la musique est l'histoire de la musique dans les cultures préhistoriques. The issue of how much bone marrow remains in the artifact is important, because the making of flutes from bone usually includes removing the marrow. It’s carved from the bone of a cave bear – and it sounds hauntingly beautiful. It is about 43,100 years old. The location of the site is a horizontal cave, 45 metres (148 ft) long and up to 15 metres (49 ft) wide; it is 230 m (750 ft) above the Idrijca River, near Cerkno, and is accessible to visitors. Arheološki park Divje babe, ki leži v razgibani pokrajini Idrijsko-Cerkljanskega hribovja, je eno najpomembnejših najdišč stare kamene dobe na svetu. []; figure 5(4)), where also Neanderthal Mousterian layers were believed to be present [], was declared twice incorrectly as the ‘oldest instrument’, a 43 140 BP old ‘Neanderthal flute’ from layer 8 [26,27] (figure 5(4)).

Yet in the Divje Babe instance, the bone did not break, a fact not matching expectations of carnivore action, as Turk's results showed. Divje Babe Flute Regarding the Divje Babe Flute, the probability that four randomly placed holes would appear inline in a recognizable musical scale is very low. Furthermore, all are in the proper ratio of bore size to hole size found in most flutes, and the bone is the kind (femur) usually used for bone flutes. [11], Since World War II, like specimens have been found in Mokrica Cave (Slovene: MokriÅ¡ka jama) and Betal Rock Shelter (Betalov spodmol). The Divje Babe bone's holes matched those spacings very closely to a series of note-holes in a minor scale. Bob Fink claimed in his essay[27] in 1997, that the bone's holes were "consistent with four notes of the diatonic scale" (do, re, mi, fa) based on the spacing of those four holes. According to Mitja Brodar, who discovered many of them, bones with holes have been dated only to the end of the Mousterian and the beginning of the Aurignacian, and have not yet been found in Western Europe. The spacing of the holes on a modern diatonic (minor scale) flute are unique, and not evenly spaced. This unusual musical instrument, neither a flute nor a whistle, was cemented near the remains of a 50,000 – 60,000 years old Neanderthal fire pit, made from the thigh bone of a young cave bear into which the Neanderthal drilled three holes and made a sharpened rim for the mouthpiece using tools made of bone and stone. It is about 43,100 years old. [26] (Fink had suggested there may have originally been a mouthpiece extension added to the bone before it was broken.). これは楽器の歴史で貴重な発見になり、「Divje Babe flute」と命名された。 Divje Babe siteのGoogle Earthポインター情報 46 6'53.55"N,13 54'33.34"E または、 46.114875, 13.909261 No match could be found to any known animals. See the Wikipedia article about it . In 2015 Cajus G. Diedrich suggested the holes could be explained by scavenging from spotted hyena. Bones with holes such as those found in the Potok Cave have been ascribed to modern human Cro-Magnon,[12] and Mitja Brodar asserts that they are an element of the Central European Aurignacian. A visit to the Archaeological Park Divje babe is possible only with a guide, by prior arrangement at least a week before the scheduled arrival. Organized visits to the Archaeological Park Divje babe take place from April 1st to October 31th. The bone has become a noted attraction in the National Museum of Slovenia, publicized on official Slovenian websites,[18] aired on TV with tunes played on a clay replica,[19] and is a source of Slovenian national pride. That is why we cannot simply speak of a flute any longer, but rather of a musical instrument of a special kind, one which profoundly changed our views of the Neanderthal, who went extinct 30,000 years ago. There is also no evidence that the two holes could have been bitten at the same time. Turk wrote in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology book The Origins of Music: "If this probability [of having lined-up holes looking like a flute] were greater (and of course it isn't), it is likely that there would have been more such finds, since...carnivores in cave dens were at least as active on bones, if not more so, than people in cave dwellings...". The Divje Babe Flute: (Slovenia) A Bear femur bone 43,000 - 84,000 BP. This page was last edited on 22 December 2020, at 23:29. In essence, Fink said, they are like a simple fingerprint. Die größere der beiden Höhlen ist die archäologisch bedeutsame Divje babe I.Sie zählt neben Betalov spodmol und Potočka zijalka zu den wichtigsten steinzeitlichen Fundstellen Sloweniens. The natural shape of the chosen left thigh bone, its size and artificial redesign is ergonomically sound and adapted for a right-handed musician. [6] As such, it is possibly the world's oldest known musical instrument. Les flûtes paléolithiques Divje babe I, Istállóskő, Lokve etc. A response," in: Ellen Hickmann, Anne Draffkorn Kilmer and Ricardo Eichmann (Eds.). The distance between the centers of the holes is 35 mm (1.38 in).[15]. It has been suggested that it was made by Neanderthals as a form of musical instrument, its hole spacing and alignment leading to its being labeled a "Neanderthal flute." The probability that four randomly placed holes would appear in line in a recognizable musical scale is very low according to an analysis made by Canadian musicologist Bob Fink in 2000. Of those still preserved, the best known is a mandible of a cave bear with three holes in the mandibular canal. The oldest flute ever discovered may be the so-called Divje Babe flute, found in the Slovenian cave Divje Babe I in 1995. [22] Responding to the D'Errico carnivore-origin hypothesis, Turk pointed out that the features "common" between the carnivore-origin artifact and other chewed bones studied by D'Errico (see Hole shape below) do not include the alignment of the holes. The bone flute is the oldest ever found musical instrument in the world, so we could also call the village of Šebrelje or the Cerkno region »the cradle of world music«. Thank you for helping build the largest language community on the internet. © 2018 - ArheoloÅ¡ki park Divje babe. [7], Divje Babe is the oldest known archaeological site in Slovenia. Turk conducted laboratory experiments which pierced holes in fresh bear bones in the manner of carnivore punctures, and in every case, the bones split. Nowell and Chase wrote in Studies In Music Archaeology III that the juvenile bear bone was too short to play those four holes in tune to any diatonic series of tones and half-tones. Paintings were made, models constructed, and musicians such as biology professor and flautist Jelle Atema have played them publicly. Nowell wrote that holes in the specimen "were almost certainly made sequentially rather than simultaneously and that the distance between them has nothing to do with the distance between any two teeth in a wolf's jaw. La grotte, accessible au public, est localisée 230 mètres au-dessus de la rivière Idrijca près de Cerkno.. Wallin, Nils, Björn Merker, and Steven Brown, eds. Grafična zasnova in izvedba: Guided tour of the cave up to 10 persons:Â. Turk wrote, in his book and in his article in MIT's Origins of Music anthology, the bone shows no "counter-bites" that one would normally expect on the other side of the bone matching the immense pressure necessary for a bite to make the center holes. Researchers of Pleistocene climate change working at the site have uncovered more than 600 archaeological items in at least ten levels, including twenty hearths[8] and the skeletal remains of cave bears. They came away even more skeptical that the bear bone had ever emitted music. Lokacija obsega 45m dolgo in do 15m široko jamo, ki se nahaja 230m nad reko Idrijco blizu Cerkna in je dostopna za zaključene skupine obiskovalcev. Turk's 1997 book reported that the holes have similar diameters which would accommodate fingertips, and all are circular instead of oval (as carnivore bites often are). In a 2011 article, Matija Turk published the results of a collaboration with Ljuben Dimkaroski, an academic musician who had made replicas of the artifact. The colour of the marrow cavity does not differ from the colour of the external surface of the bone. [28] Dimkaroski created over 30 wooden and bone replicas of the flute and experimented with them. The holes could have simply been perforated in the process by pointed canine or carnassial teeth, and their roundness could be due to natural damage after the bone was abandoned. (in the volume Moussterian Bone Flute, p. 160) wrote that "the marrow cavity is basically cleaned of spongiose. [20], French-based Italian taphonomist Francesco D'Errico, as well as Claus-Stephan Holdermann, Jordi Serangeli, Philip G. Chase, and April Nowell have all hypothesized its carnivore origin.[21]. In the end, he concentrated on playing a replica made on a femur of a juvenile cave bear from Divje Babe I Cave, to come as close as possible to the dimensions of the original. The Divje Babe Flute is a cave bear femur pierced by spaced holes. Divje Babe Flute (5 F) Media in category "Lower Wild Women's Cave" The following 5 files are in this category, out of 5 total. Močnikova ulica 2, 5282 Cerkno, +386 (0)5 373 46 45 The spacing between the holes matches present diatomic scale (5) At present there is still an official dispute over whether the holes were man-made or not, but the evidence points strongly in favour of the idea that this is the earliest yet discovered evidence of a musical instrument in the world. Slovenian archeologist Mitja Brodar, however, argues that it was made by Cro-Magnons as an element of Central European Aurignacian culture. Turk, Matija and Dimkaroski, Ljuben. Using cave-bear bone accumulations to assess the Divje Babe I bone ‘flute’ Volume 72, Issue 275 Francesco D'Errico (a1) , Paola Villa (a2) (a3) , Ana C. Pinto Llona (a4) and Rosa Ruiz Idarraga (a5) [10], In the 1920s and 1930s and 1940s, archaeologist Srečko Brodar (father of Mitja Brodar) discovered tens of bones with holes at another site, the Potok Cave (Slovene: Potočka zijalka) in the Eastern Karawanks, but almost all of them were destroyed during the World War II Italian annexation. The replicas were made from femurs of juvenile brown bears provided by the Hunters Association of Slovenia, but also calf, goat, pig, roe and red deer bones. 2.2 The long discussed Slovenian punctured cave bear cub bone find Another juvenile bear cub femur with holes from Divje Babe I Cave, Slovenia, a small cave bear den (cf. For making a visit to Archaeological Park Divje babe, you can call us or visit LTO Laufar Cerkno. This incredible find from the Archaeological Park Divje Babe is at least 10,000 years older and significantly more capable than all other previously known Palaeolithic flutes in Europe made from bird bones by the first anatomically modern humans. Otherwise, it would be a darker colour than the surface of the bone, as we know from coloured marrow cavities of whole limb bones.

Bon, admettons que la flûte “probable” ne soit qu’une curiosité de la nature, nous devons aussi admettre que l’homme aussi faitpartie de cette Humans or carnivores? Brodar assumes these bones are still not recognized by the international research community due to the fact that most of them were found in France, and the Paleolithic is still considered to be the French's domain. A Neanderthal flute, at least 45,000 years old, found at the Divje babe archaeological site in 1995, is probably the oldest musical instrument in the world.

Says Nowell, '[Turk's] willing to give it the benefit of the doubt, whereas we're not.' [1] He further posits that the Divje Babe Flute is a product of modern humans, but this has been disputed by other Slovene scholars. "[8] An equally critical issue is that, if the holes in this "flute" are of artificial origin, to date there does not seem to be any available means to determine whether they were deliberately drilled 43 thousand years ago, or are of a more contemporary origin (as part of an elaborate hoax, perhaps). Because it has the characteristics of a flute, he dubbed it a Neanderthal flute. The tooth spans were analyzed by all taphonomists concerned to see if any animals could bite two or more such holes at once. Photo: T. Lauko. The Divje Babe flute is a cave bear femur pierced by spaced holes that was found at the Divje Babe archeological park located near Cerkno in northwestern Slovenia.It has been suggested that it was made by Neanderthals, however according to Slovenian archeologist Brodar it was made by Cro-Magnon as an element of Central European Aurignacian [1]. Turk, Ivan, Miran Pflaum, and Dean Pekarovič. 2000. "[23], Iain Morley, despite his holding the carnivore-origin hypothesis, observed in his November 2006 article that, "[w]hilst the collections of cave bear bones examined by D'Errico...as well as those discussed by Turk...do show similar shaped and damaged holes...none of these occur in the diaphysis of a femur," as is found on the reputed flute.[24]. The artifact is a cave bear femur , 43100 ± 700 years old, that has been pierced with spaced holes. The background flute and wind music were first added by Andrew Lienhard when I did a one-hour CD about the stone age. ", The National Museum of Slovenia argues that this evidence has "finally refuted hypotheses that the bone was perforated because of a bear bite". In 2008, another discovery was made – a bone flute in the Hohle Fels cave near Ulm in Germany dating back 43,000 years. Marcel Otte (director of the Museum of Prehistory, University of Liege, Belgium) pointed out in an April 2000 article in Current Anthropology that there is a possible thumb-hole on the opposite side of the Divje Babe bone, which, making five holes, would perfectly fit a human hand. Archaeologists have found a pre-historic instrument carved from cave bear bones, and it can still be played today. The bone fragment is the diaphysis of the left femur of a one- to two-year-old cave bear and is 133.6 mm (5.26 in) long. [16][17] Thus Ivan Turk has asserted that, whether the holes are "artificial" (made by man) or "natural" (punctures from a carnivore bite), origin is the "crucial question. More info at: www.divje-babe.si A visit to the Archaeological Park If the bone is indeed a usable flute, it would be an argument for the existence of music 43 thousand years ago. For one thing, both ends had clearly been gnawed away by something, perhaps a wolf, seeking greasy marrow. The Neanderthal flute from Divje babe, kept by the National Museum of Slovenia. [9] According to the museum's statements, the presumed flute has been associated with the "end of the middle Pleistocene" and with Neanderthals, about 55,000 years ago. [2] They published photos of several bones with holes in them which had more or less circular holes similar to those found in the artifact, but they did not have a single bone coming even close to the linear alignment of Turk's holes. How do you say Divje Babe Flute? The Divje Babe Flute is a cave bear femur pierced by spaced holes that was found in 1995 at the Divje Babe archeological park located near Cerkno in northwestern Slovenia. "[26]. The presence of marrow suggests that no one had bothered to hollow out the bone as if to create an end-blown flute. However, a general consensus that the Divje Babe flute is actually a musical instrument has been growing as the view of the Neanderthals from subhuman brutes to more sophisticated humans is changing. [8] [9] [10] It is from a juvenile cave bear femur at the Divje Babe site , near a Mousterian hearth. An examination of the specimen using computed tomography was published in 2005 by Ivan Turk, in which he concluded that "the two partially preserved holes were formerly created before the damage...or before the indisputable intervention of a carnivore.
