Nearly a century ago, in 1922, Carl Guthe, from the University of Michigan, conducted a three-year-long archaeological reconnaissance of the southern Philippines. He identified 542 sites. Twenty-six of these sites contained European-made ceramics dating from the 377 years of Spanish colonial rule. Significantly, the majority of these were made during the nineteenth century in Great Britain and the Netherlands, both of which were neighbouring colonial powers in Southeast Asia. The century-old Guthe Collection continues to yield information regarding life in this remote corner of the Spanish colonial world.
