Chavín de Huántar Archaeological Acoustics Project
An archaeoacoustic collaboration between Stanford University's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) and Archaeology/Anthropology

In September 2008, we measured and added to documentation of the Chavín Strombus trumpets that were discovered in 2001.

In November 2010, we presented an analysis and data from these pututus.

Listen to Tito La Rosa play one of these ancient instruments in the Museo Nacional de Chavín:
