Iron Age artifacts found in the Philippines

Artifacts dating back 2,000 years have been found on the island of Cebu.

Bersales said in a statement that they had uncovered six burials and 14 earthenware jars and some 3,000 accessioned artifacts believed to be dated back from the Philippine Iron Age, which is between 500 BC and AD 900.

Bersales said that it was the first time they had recovered artifacts dating from the Philippine Iron Age in Cebu.

“It strongly suggests that there’s already a thriving settlement in Cebu,” he said.
