Musical instruments in Antiquity? Especially the Greek and Roman ones.
That is what you will find around here. How did they look like, in which context
were these things used and who played with it ? A remarkable search
brings us interesting pictures and findings from the Antiquity.
This Website came to life thanks to a paper I wrote at the University of Ghent.
Now it is online for al those lovers of musical instruments, the Antiquity, Archeology ..
