Ancient Egypt discovery: How tombs told archaeologists Egyptians were skilled musicians


“For people living in the times of Ramses II, the Pyramids must have seemed old, for Cleopatra VII the were outright ancient.

During this time, music culture has also changed.”

For instance, the simple harp played around the time of the Pyramid’s construction 4,500 years ago was very different from the one played around the birth of Jesus Christ.

Archaeologists have also found evidence to suggest the Egyptians formed bands were men, women and instrumentalists performed together.

Music also played a critical, ceremonial role in Ancient Egyptian life.
