MANILA, Philippines – Archaeologists have unearthed remnants of what they believe is a 1,000-year-old village on a jungle-covered mountaintop in the Philippines with limestone coffins of a type never before found in this Southeast Asian nation, officials said Thursday.
National Museum official Eusebio Dizon said the village on Mount Kamhantik, near Mulanay town in Quezon province, could be at least 1,000 years old based on U.S. carbon dating tests done on a human tooth found in one of 15 limestone graves he and other archaeologists have dug out since last year.
The discovery of the rectangular tombs, which were carved into limestone outcrops jutting from the forest ground, is important because it is the first indication that Filipinos at that time practiced a more advanced burial ritual than previously thought and that they used metal tools to carve the coffins

I smell a FAUX NEWS hoax. i say this as i am in the philipinnes at the moment, and there has been NO WORD about this so called discovery here. one would think that a major find like this would be heavily publicized in the capital city as well as the rest of the country. can't find a thing, i have asked around and no one has heard anything about it. i did a quick search and the ONLY thing i was able to find was from faux news.
was it a slow news day or something so they needed to INVENT such a story?
