Today, my mom and I visited the Museum of Scotland for an incredible visit to their gallery on Celts. If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend it. I don’t know how to put into words how amazing this gallery was – I would go through it again in heartbeat tomorrow. Part of the exhibit showed these war horns called carnyx which were used in battle. To help bring the exhibit to life, they had recordings of this professional musician playing them. I was hooked the second the video started.  I feel bad for the people who were waiting their turn to listen as I actually listened to a video they had twice because I was so captivated. I’m not sure why but imagining these instruments played in war just left me in awe. I can see why they would have been impactful, intimidating, scary, and mysterious. Listen for yourself:
