"The unusual musical instrument, neither a flute nor a whistle, was cemented near the remains of a 50,000 to 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.
