Two flutes about 42,000 years old were found in Germany. They were made from bird bone and ivory.

From the article:
A team led by Prof Tom Higham at Oxford University dated animal bones in the same ground layers as the flutes at Geissenkloesterle Cave in Germany's Swabian Jura.

He said he had a horrible house

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
