I haven't heard of nor seen the horn you write about. I would love to see a picture of it, even measurements as well, if they are available. My fax is I doubt if the Larousse book you mention is in our library. I own only the Larousse Int'l Illus.
What is "obvious" to us I am frequently reminded must be carefully examined for bias.
Even whether this ancient bone is a flute has been denied. To me, it's obviously a flute. But I've been forced to defend the obvious as if it wasn't obvious. Perhaps the horn could be denied as a flute as well, unless we can defend the obvious there as well.

As far as the open-closed ends issue goes, Match 2 in the essay assumes an open-ended flute. Match 1 in the essay considers that it could have been a closed flute. The normal length of a femur is quite long.
So we felt it was reasonable to assume that it was not part of a short ocarina type instrument. We'll never know unless they find the rest of the object. Where I deal with issues of "could have been" is where I tried my best to obtain reasonably accurate probabilities for certain statements in this essay.
What I have held as conclusive in the essay is that the holes are consistent with those of a diatonic scale scale IF the flute is long enough.
What I held as probable is that the hole spacing reflects not so much an ocarina or 4 or 5 note scale with a half-tone or other pitch if it was a short flutebut a larger scale, likely parallel to the diatonic scale.
I can't conclude this, but hold it probable for reasons examined in some of the correspondence note: There I pointed to the widespread cross-cultural fact of pentatonic and 7-note diatonic scales in our own history and the acoustic basis for these scales as justification for the probabilities being higher regarding the Neanderthal bone matching a diatonic rather than matching a more obscure or hitherto unknown scale.
I held match 2 as probable open-end minor scale over match 1 major, closed endbecause removing marrow is easier when the ends are broken off rather than drilling holes when marrow is still in the bone, and sucking it out.
And also because the dimensions of the fit are closer to an acoustic scale than the dimensions of match 1. Besides, how on earth could one measure these effects without the entire bone? Having said that, I and my partner, Mike Finley, nevertheless would be interested in receiving copies of the work and experiments you've done or a summary of it on these matters as we certainly have developed a need to understand this ever since we embarked on this essay.

After spending time playing Eddie's drum kit, Alex became more skilled at the drums than Eddie. Hi Erin, Thank you for your essay.
I am so sorry for your loss and the loss that it represents to your discipline. In large part, I attribute the endless cycle of adjunct appointments that my partner went through (and is currently going through – going on 6 years) to the .
A friend of a friend told me that he tried to set the price of his game to some figure or other but that Valve vetoed it and set it to something else. Being a musician has effected me in many positive ways. Learning music at a young age taught me responsible, how to manage my time, and how to communicate with others more quickly and efficiently.
As I got older if gave me a hobby and a way express myself.
