Prehistorian historian Nicholas Conard presents the bone flute from Hohle Fels to journalists on June 24, 2009 in the southern German city of Tuebingen. Excavations in the summer of 2008 at the sites of Hohle Fels and Vogelherd produced new evidence for Paleolithic music in the form of the remains of one nearly complete bone flute and isolated small fragments of three ivory flutes.
