Amazing Grace!

While studying Middle Eastern history, I was surprised to learn that the bagpipe didn't originate in Scotland. Fascinatingly, the bagpipe originated from the Middle East! Archaeologists speculate the bagpipe immigrated from the Mediterranean to Scotland around 2000 to 3000 BC. So, true to form, as depicted on this amazing video, the bagpipes being played in the Roman Coliseum were actually around!
