A Possible Palaeolithic Site in Northern Mindanao

  • Leee M. Neri Archaeological Studies Program


Five possible Palaeolithic stone tools were recovered from the Huluga Open Site when the Archaeological Studies Program (ASP) conducted an archaeological survey and excavation in the last quarter of 2004 in Cagayan de Oro City. A preliminary analysis was conducted based on reference and morphology of the archaeological materials. Further scientific study and a thorough archaeological exploration at the site may reveal the antiquity of the Huluga Open Site in particular and Mindanao in general.
