Artifacts

Artifacts, archaeologically speaking are objects made or modified by a human culture and later recovered from an archaeological endeavor. In the case of 'cultural artifacts', these are human-made objects which give information about the culture of its creators and users and usually had a practical purpose. Some of these are ancient objects that have been recovered from marine excavations, unearthed or just "found".

Some of our current collection of artifacts are shown in this category such as the example to the right; an anthropomorphic figure handle fragment of a carved limestone secondary burial urn cover from a site in the Kulaman plateau, Cotabato province, Mindanao island, in the Philippine archipelago.

Many of our favorite pieces are in this category, their age and history being particularly fascinating. Since each of these items usually had some practical use, the history behind them and the primitive hands that made and used them is awe inspiring.
