Antiquity, Archaeological Processes, and Highland Adaptation
Stephen B. Abacado's book compels us to rethink common misconceptions about the Ifugao Rice Terraces in the Cordillera region in northern Philippines. Based on ethnographic, ethnohistoric, and archaeological investigations, Abacado's research establishes that the terraces are fairly recent, around 500 years old, and not 2000 years old as previously dated by earlier anthropologists.
