Barangay: Sixteenth-Century Philippine Culture and Society
William Henry Scott's book presents an ethnography of the Philippines during the 16th century based on an extensive collection of published sources on how Spaniards actually described Filipinos when they first encountered them. It includes information on a wide range of topics, from physical appearance, food and farming, trade, religion, literature, sciences, social organization, and warfare. A substantial portion of the book covered the Visayas, while the second half surveys the rest of the archipelago from north to south.
