Ritual behavior is often reflected in material culture, but the individual meaning of ritual acts is often difficult to deduce when it comes past societies. Even more difficult is the study of the interaction of ritual activities and sound production in ancient societies. In some cases,best replica watches living traditions may offer hints, but ethnographical and ethnomusicological information also reveal the wide frame of possible interpretations. However, archaeological contexts, the instrument symbolism, iconographical and/or textual information, and other data offer at least some information. Also, the characteristic sounds and their respective effects can be analyzed and, when including all relevant information in a comparative way, a great portion of possible ritual settings reconstructed.
