Re: Neandertal flute

Neandertals are becoming more and more human. Burials with flowers. And
now music-making. Of course, I guess we can't be sure the "flute" is
really a "flute" (in our reference of meaning). Just because artifacts
from different cultures share similar forms, it does not necessarily
follow they share similar functions.

Whatever, I will read the original source with interest.
