This caught my eye when browsing the BBC news website. An attempt by Jazz composer Simon Thorne to recreate the music of the Neanderthals. The result is a 75-minute composition which can be heard here: Soundscape
Simon Thorne says himself that: “It’s a ridiculous notion to suggest we could ever know the precise role that music played in the lives of the Neanderthals, but imagining it has been a fascinating experience.”
As interesting as it may sound does it have any archaeological value other than as an anecdote?
