Oldest Filipino



The oldest Filipino is 67,000 years old.

Don't worry he is already dead by now. He's not living.

This is only according to the bone that Archaeologist Dr. Armand Salvador Mijares have found at a Callao Cave in Cagayan that dates back to be at least 67,000 years old.

The ancient foot bone, known as MT3, a right third metatarsal was found to be 67,000 years old from a dating process known as Uranium Series analysis carried out by Australian National University in Canberra, Australia.



The bone, found in an extensive cave network, predates the 47,000-year-old Tabon Man found in a Palawan cave , that is previously known as the first human to have lived in the country.

Wow, had he ever lived until today, will he be happy at what he will see?
