Discovery

The archaeological site​ is part of 280 hectares (692 acres) of forest land that was declared a government-protected area in 1998 to keep away treasure hunters and slash-and-burn farmers. Treasure hunters looking for gold exposed some of the limestone tombs years ago, but it was only in 2011 that Manila -based archaeologists started to unearth the graves and artifacts and realize the significance of the find.
