Musical Head

Found via BBC News:

A sequence of 0s, Is and IIs have been found on one of the Stirling Heads – wooden medallions which would have decorated the castle’s royal palace. It is believed the music could have been played on instruments such as harps, viols, fiddles and lutes.

Listen to a harpist’s interpretation of the music.
