There is nothing like seeing how advances in technology play a very important role today, especially within the world of archeology, where it is possible to contribute with research and obtain important data such as those that have been given a few days ago, where the international archaeological community has seen how a researcher has brought to the present the importance of music from the Bronze Age to the present day.
Billy O Foghlú, a research archaeologist at the Australian National University, has managed to bring to the present an instrument belonging to the Bronze Age. It's about a old irish horn and it has been possible thanks to 3D technology, with which he printed a mouthpiece of this instrument.
At first, when the remains of this instrument were discovered, it had been believed that it was a javelin, but O Foghlú had the idea of placing his replica on the horn and managed to make the instrument sound with a beautiful tone that left him completely surprised .
As stated by the researcher:
Suddenly, the music of this instrument played again after so many centuries. These horns were not only used as hunting horns, many of them were carefully built and used for hours, which shows that music clearly had a leading role in the culture of those years.
This class of instruments were found in many corners of Europe, belonging to both the Bronze Age and the Iron Age, although they were used more frequently in Northern European countries. I affirm that. since there were no mouthpieces in Ireland, it is believed that the Irish music scene could have led to a dark age.
This researcher declares that he is very intrigued by what is called Navan Speartbutt, the remains of what was considered at the time part of a javelin or a kind of harpoon. Despite not having had access to the original bronze artifact, he was not satisfied and taking the exact measurements he was able to replicate it using 3D printing and test it with his own horn.
In his investigations, he declared that he has only found some mouthpieces, which in addition to having been able to lead to a dark age, in Ireland it could happen that they were ritually dismantled and relegated to a kind of funerary tribute so that their owner could take them with him when he died.
After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
