I was searching information about drums skins made of animal hide and I thought, "has there ever been a drum made with elephant skin?".
When I googled this I keep finding multiple links that say, that the oldest drum ever was found by archeologists, trapped in the ice of Antarctica. and is supposably 37,000 years old and made of elephant skin.
Example from the book Drums by Roberta Baxter (2020). The "Look inside" preview visible on that website contains this page:
I see multiple sites claim this but, I cannot find any source to this and doubt that this is real. Does anyone know where this story came from?
