The Carnyx

Jan 5, 2021

I stumbled upon the following museum lecture from 2015 on YouTube, highlighting the carnyx, a Celtic war horn that was used thousands of used ago (and only recently reconstructed!). If you have 45 minutes and an interest in either history or music, I highly recommend watching.

Really interesting. Must have been frightening in battle!

Agreed. The last bit of the video, where he plays with the recording of three others, was truly haunting.
