From what I understand, the oldest harps, or records of harps came from what is now known as India. Although there are some who think that the harp was invented in the boundaries of ancient Greece.
It is thought that the harp might have come from ancient Egypt or Europe. Many scientists believe that the harp may have evolved from the hunter's bow and strings.
The oldest harp found is from ancient Egypt from around 4000BC, so it may have come from there, but as this pre-dates records, no one can say for certain.
