The Laguna Copperplate Inscription

The Laguna Copperplate Inscription. The history of any society starts with its earliest written record. All that went before that record is prehistoric or legendary. Until recently it was generally considered that Philippine history began with the writings of a foreigner, Antonio Pigafetta who travelled with Ferdinand Magellan in 1521. Now, with the discovery of the Laguna Copperplate Inscription, a document written by an ancient Filipino, that history now reaches back to the year 900 C.E. and we have a glimpse of life in the Philippines over 1100 years ago, This has become the most important document in the study and of ancient Philippine History.
