New Human Callao Cave Is it possible that some of the first humans inhabited the caves of the philippines? Scientists are pondering the possibility after a rare discovery took place at the callao cave system in the northern island of Luzon. Evolution in asia has always been an interesting and complicated subject but this just made it even more complicated! The skull remains are carbon dated between 50,000 to 67000 years ago. This discovery could possibly rewrite the history books, pushing the clock back 20,000 years of when humans began entering southeast Asia. This find go against the “out of Africa” theory which states that human origins are descended from humans in Africa and came from one region. The skeleton was dubbed as the Homo Luzonensis in April of 2019. 5. The Laguna Copper Plate Inscription The laguna copper plate inscription is the oldest of any calendar dated object found in the philippines. It was discovered by a worker near the lumbang river in the Laguna province.
