ⓘ History of Bulacan

The earliest archeological evidence for human habitation in the Philippines archipelago is the 40.000-year-old Tabon Man of Palawan and the Angono Petroglyphs in Rizal. By 1000 B.C. the inhabitants of the Philippine archipelago had developed into four distinct kinds of peoples: tribal groups who depended on hunter-gathering and were concentrated in forests, warrior societies who practiced social ranking and ritualized warfare and roamed the plains, the petty plutocracy of the Ifugao Cordillera Highlanders, who occupied the mountain ranges of Luzon, and the harbor principalities of the estuarine civilizations that grew along rivers and seashores while participating in trans-island maritime trade.

Around 300-700 C. E. the seafaring peoples of the Islands traveling in balangays began to trade with the Indianized kingdoms of Maritime Southeast Asia and the nearby East Asian principalities, adopting influences from Buddhism and Hinduism.

During the reign of the emperors of the Tang dynasty in the 10th century, Arab and Chinese traders began to come in Bulacan, both Indian and Chinese influences intensified in the 11th and 12th centuries. Bulacan by this time had become a transit point and the Bulakeños expert seafarers.

They lived in houses made of wood, bamboo and palm leaf thatch, it was a syllabary, written on birch bark and bamboo, played, wore silk doublets and loin clothes or flowing skirts and semi-transparent blouses and jewelry. They developed the social scheme of nobles, free and serfs and buried their dead in formal graveyard with grave furniture consisting of imported Chinese pottery, at least, one example of which can be seen today in Bulacan.

The story began when the village lived the fishermen on the coast of Manila Bay before the arrival of the Spaniards. These settlers moved in and started the crops as they found the interior was fertile and drained by a network of rivers and streams. The settlements flourished and grew into what is now known as the province of Bulacan.
