Description

Northern Luzon, circa 75,000 years ago

Two flake tools made of stone and the remains of ancient ancestors of the elephant, such as the Paleoloxodon sp. and Elephas namadicus were recovered in the Cagayan Valley, in the northern island of Luzon. These tools and modified fossil remains provide some of the earliest evidence of human activity in the Philippines, and land bridges that connected the archipelago to mainland Southeast Asia. In 2007, human fossils dating back to 65,000 BCE were found in the Callao caves of Penablanca, Cagayan province.
