The Oldest Song in the World ~  Cuniform tablets from the Syrian city of ancient Ugarit, about 3400 bce  in the Hurrian language (with borrowed Akkadian terms) had a form of musical notation. There is evidence that both the 7-note diatonic scale as well as harmony existed 3,400 years ago. This flies in the face of most musicologists' views that ancient harmony was virtually non-existent and the scale only about as old as the Ancient Greeks, 2000 years ago.

These two Late Bronze Age horns were discovered in Co. Antrim at bogs located in Drumbest and Drunkendult respectively. Made from bronze they were originally cast in clay moulds. They represent sophisticated pieces of early metal-working and were undoubtedly valuable items, whose deposition in a bog may represent ritual activity.
