The Lute of Har-Mose 3500 years old (c.1490 BCE) 

Posted 9/2/2010 2:09:25 PM

The oldest-known skin-headed tanbur (a more correct term than lute) is the "Lute of the singer, Har-Mose" (c.1490 BCE), found in an an Egyptian tomb. It had 3-strings, and... was played with a "plectrum" (flatpick) -- which is still attached to it, by a cord. (Yes... that's right... it was a "plectrum" banjo!) --------- [Photo: © 2008 -- Courtesy of Ulf Jagfors] Courtesy of The Cairo Museum, Egypt
