Where did the harp originate?

Answer

It is thought that the harp originated in France or Egypt almost 15,000 years ago. Some scientists believe that the harp evolved from the hunter's bow.
1 Additional Answer
The harp goes back to pre-history, that means before records were kept, so no one knows where or when it was invented. The oldest harp found is from Egypt from 4000BC.
