Goose bone flute found at Lincoln Castle

The construction of a new vault for the Magna Carta at Lincoln Castle led to the discovery of a unique goose bone flute dating to Norman times. While the flute was broken, a re-enactor muscian has created two replicas, one for display with the broken original and another to play. (photos)

Muscian Al Garrod sent out a call for goose bones for his project with great response. "It pleased my wife immensely to have goose wings boiling in the kitchen," he said.
