Abstract:
Article on the origins of the tradition of Northumbrian bagpipes, as represented in the Society of Antiquaries of Northumberland's collection. It is argued that finds of wood and bone from the east of England reveal a preference for reed-voiced pipes of similar length and narrow bore, these being in everyday use during the Middle Ages, the Anglo-Saxon period and even Roman times, the sound produced being strikingly similar to that of Northumbrian bagpipes. Close inspection of the finger-hole margins of some finds reveals traces which indicated deliberate tuning, a purpose which is reflected in some features of tunings of the Society's pipes.
