A lyre would be very appropriate to northern Europe till at least the 
12th century.  Easy to both make and play.  You can see some information 
and instruments by a friend of mine at 
http://www3.telus.net/public/stingle/aleyn/ ; click on the link for 
lyres.  There's a video somewhere on Youtube on how to play one.
