Philippine Ancestral Gold by Florina H. CAPISTRANO-BAKER /John GUY/ John MIKSIC
The book 'Philippine Ancestral Gold' situates more than 1,000 gold objects recovered in the Philippines from the 1960s to 1981 within the context of early Southeast Asia. Many of these treasures were found in association with tenth-to-twelfth century Chinese export ceramics. Formal similarities with objects from other Southeast Asian cultures affirm regional affinities and inter-island trade networks that flourished in the region before regular contact with the Western world.
