The existence of music in the Paleolithic is attested by the discovery of several types of instruments: flutes, whistles, bull-roarers and scrapers. Drums probably existed in the Paleolithic, but these are rarely if ever preserved. However, in some caves, calcite sheets or curtains showing traces of percussion testify to the rhythmical talents of prehistoric musicians. The flute was from Isturitz, Atlantic Pyrenees. Aurignacian, between 40 000 and 26 000 years ago.
