Bolinao Skull. * The formidable Bolinao Skull is only one of 67 skulls recovered from the Balingasay Archaeological Site in Bolinao, Pangasinan. They were found along with several Early Ming dynasty (1368- 1644) ceramics. * The skulls have teeth that are decorated with gold ornaments, a symbol of wealth and bravery during the prehistoric era. * The Bolinao Skull (shown above) stands out because gold scales were observed: “on the buccal surfaces of the upper and lower incisors and canines.” The gold decorations have flat rounded tops that are placed in a bored hole on the teeth. These gold ornaments overlap one another, making them look like fish scales .

* In 1994, Dr. Eusebio Dizon, deputy director of the Archeology Division of the National Museum, went to Batanes with a team of experts for an extensive archaeological project. * One of their surprising discoveries was a triangular-shaped hill at Savidug, a municipality in Sabtang. They learned that this was one of four high rocky formations locally known as ijang (also spelled as idjang ). * Dizon’s team were able to find evidence that these idjangs were used both for habitation and fortification. In other words, they functioned as a castle, similar to European structures in terms of purpose but not in terms of appearance. Batanes Castle

* This golden figurine of a female deity is the first image identified to be of Indian origin. In 1917, it was accidentally discovered by a Manobo woman in the banks of the Wawa River in Agusan, Mindanao after a heavy rain. Shortly after that, Philippines’ pioneer prehistorian H. Otley Beyer declared it as “the most spectacular find yet made in Philippine archaeology.” * The gold Agusan image, which measures five and a half inches tall and weighs nearly four pounds of 21-carat gold, is now displayed in the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, USA.

* In 2007, a group of archaeologists led by Dr. Armand Mijares of U.P. Diliman discovered a foot bone in Callao Cave in the town of Peñablanca, Cagayan. The said skeletal remain–specifically the third metatarsal of the foot–is said to be “the earliest human fossil found in the Asia- Pacific region.” * Based on a method called “uranium-series dating,” it was also revealed that the foot bone is approximately 67, 000 years old, predating the “Tabon Man”–long been thought to be the country’s earliest human remains–which is only 50,000 years old. * The Callao Man, according to experts, possibly reached the island of Luzon from Indonesia by raft, which suggests that our ancestors already possessed “knowledge of seacraft-making in this early period.” * However, other experts believe that the Callao Man is probably just a species closely related to humans and was a product of an evolutionary process called “human speciation.” The Callao Man

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
