The volume unites 56 contributions, 53 of which were presented at the 2nd symposium of the International Study Group on Music Archaeology in Kloster Michaelstein in 2000 and at the 6th colloquium of the ICTM-Study Group in Istanbul in 1993. There are also a foreword, an introduction, a list of participants, and explanations on the CD. At first, the development of human brain and hands are considered.
