Previously, the oldest human remains in the Philippines were from 47,000 years ago. The archaeologist who has it says this bone is much, much older.
"With the dating, (it) goes … roughly 67,000 years ago, making it one of the oldest Homo sapiens remains in Asia Pacific," Dr. Armand Salvador Mijares said.
That would pre-date the other bones by some 20,000 years. However, more testing still needs to be done to confirm the age.
