Recorder-like instruments are among the world's oldest!

Third graders take note -- the recorders we will be getting are descended from bone flutes like this one, discovered in caves in Europe that were inhabited during the ice age -- 40,000 years ago. Another way of looking at this is that people have been playing hot cross buns since before hot cross buns were invented!
