To conclude the strings portion of our evolution or biblical ancient instrumentation we examine the archeology and musicology behind the Silver Lyre from Ur. Richard Dunbrill an expert Archeomusicologist, details the history of this instrument from excavation to reconstructing its original casing for display in the 1960s. Unfortunately it is no longer able to be viewed by the public. However, Richard, along with Peter Pringle, have taken upon themselves to reconstruct the frame for the silver Lyre as well as the Babylonian tuning of the strings.
