Abstract

The volume contains 45 contributions, 27 of which are written in the English language. They are divided into nine sections, namely the recognition of the late scholar Hans Hickmann, the Far East with China, Japan and Indonesia, the Middle East with Mesopotamia, the Caucasus, Central Asia and the Parthians, the Near East with the Levant, Anatolia and the Hittites, Latin America and Africa, Egypt and the Aegean, Greek and Roman Antiquity, European Prehistory with the Nordic Bronze Age, the Situlae art of the Hallstatt Period and the insular Celts, as well as regional developments in Europe. In the articles, percussion instruments [drum, bell, gong, rattle, cymbals, scrapers, small cymbals, sistrum, lamellophones], string instruments [harp, lyre, lute] and wind instruments [pipe, flute, panpipes, double oboe, trumpet, horn, transverse horn, aulos, lur, carnyx] are considered as are the notation of pieces of music and the sound effect of instruments. The sources are finds, representations in pictures and texts. Also, there are frequent references to metallurgy as a technical prerequisite for the construction of instruments.
