The first inhabitants of the Philippines arrived around 250,000 years ago, probably migrating over a land bridge from the Asian mainland. The Negrito people arrived 25,000 years ago, but they were driven back by several waves of immigrants from Indonesia, followed by maritime immigrations of Malayan people. In 1380, the Arab-taught Makdum arrived in the Sulu archipelago and began to establish what became a powerful Islamic sphere of influence over the next hundred years. Ferdinand Magellan arrived in 1521 and claimed the archipelago for Spain. Magellan was killed by local chiefs who quite naturally disapproved of this notion. Ruy Lopez de Villalobos followed in 1543 and named the territory Filipinas after King Philip II of Spain. Permanent Spanish occupation began in 1565, and by 1571 the entire country, except for the strictly Islamic Sulu archipelago, was under Spanish control. A Filipino independence movement grew in the 19th century and Filipinos fought on the side of the Americans in 1898 during the Spanish-American War. When the Spanish were defeated, General Aguinaldo declared the Philippines independent. The USA, however, had other plans, and promptly purchased the islands from the Spanish for US$20 million. The USA eventually recognised the Filipinos' desire for independence and Manuel L Quezon was sworn in as President of the Philippine Commonwealth in 1935 as part of a transitional phase pending full independence. Japan invaded the Philippines in 1942 brutally interrupting this process and ruled until the USA re-invaded two years later. The Philippines received full independence in 1946.

Philippines history
At the time of the Spanish American War, 1898, the colonial government in the Philippines was administered by a Governor-General, invariably selected in Spain. The place was used to reward crown favorites who could return home after a few years of service with enormous fortunes wrung from natives and foreign immigrants alike by a system of taxation that savored of blackmail and confiscation. The Governor-General had a junta or cabinet composed of the Archbishop of Manila, the Captain-General of the army and the Admiral of the navy stationed in the colonies. The administrative power lay with the Governor-General and the Archbishop, and the religious orders of the Spanish Catholic Church were the practical controllers, under their superiors, of the fortunes and the fate of every locality and village that Spanish power had been able to subjugate to its iron rule.
From the Governor-General down to the private soldier, five years was the average length of service possible, so that the native population, estimated at from 8,000,000 to 15,000,000 in numbers, was always under the rule of transient strangers, having no continuing interest in their welfare. There have been, of course, individual instances of honorable and just governors. Among those recognized in recent times was General Blanco, who was afterwards selected to establish the weak experiment of autonomistic government in Cuba. It was, however, the rule, under the very nature of the colonial system, that temptation to oppress, rob, and enslave the natives was held out to every administration in succession, and such temptations are not long resisted by those appointed over uncivilized and ignorant people.

The human history of the Philippines is believed to have begun 150,000 years ago. Stone artifacts suggest hunters from the Asiatic mainland crossed an ancient land bridge.
Many historians regard the Negrito, who arrived from Asia about 25,000 years ago, to be the original inhabitants of the Philippines. Yet bones aged 50,000 years have also been discovered.
Five separate migrations of Indo-Chinese took place between 1500 and 500 BC. They were followed by Malayans between AD 500 and 1500. By the time the Portuguese voyager Ferdinand Magellan arrived in 1521, he found the islands to be thriving centers of commerce. Traders from India, Arabia, and China had been exchanging their wares and influencing the indigenous culture since the 10th century.
Along with spices, silks, and porcelains, the traders later brought Islam. Today the majority of Mindanao is Muslim. The rest of the population might also be Muslim if Magellan had not claimed the archipelago for Spain. He spread the Christian word with such fervor and total disregard for local sensibilities that fighting broke out with the people led by chieftain Lapu-Lapu, during which Magellan was killed.
Having established Manila as his capital, Legazpi defeated the Muslims on Luzon Island and enshrined Catholicism as the official religion. Baroque churches were built for centuries afterwards, Spanish culture influencing the architecture, cuisine, and education of the people. Trade strengthened with other Spanish-dominated countries such as Mexico, which exported silver.

Philippines History
Philippine history has been summed up in the phrase "400 years in a convent, 50 years in Hollywood," which refers to the two very different eras of colonial domination - first by Spain and then by the U.S. Both eras began with naval actions. The first was in 1521, when Spanish explorer Ferdinand Magellan came upon the islands during the first round-the-world voyage, but foolishly became involved in local politics and was killed by Lapu Lapu, a tribal chieftain now immortalized as the first Filipino to resist foreign rule. The islands were governed by Spain until 1898, when the nation became the only official overseas colony of the U.S., following Admiral George Dewey's victory over a Spanish fleet in Manila Bay. A U.S.-Filipino war followed the Spanish-American War and ended only when Emilio Aguinaldo, the Filipino leader, was captured by U.S. troops while in the course of negotiations. Aguinaldo did, however, extract a promise for independence by 1946 - a promise that was kept in spite of an intervening war and occupation.

The Tabon caves of Palawan indicate settlement for at least 30,500 years; these hunter-gatherers used stone flake tools .

    BASIC INFO. ECONOMY GEOGRAPHY ... PHILIPPINES The Philippines indigenous peoples originated in Southeast Asia, probably from the Malay peninsula. A variety of political structures existed, from tribal societies to small monarchies ruled by princes. Early on, commercial links were established between the Philippines and places such as China and the East Indies. The first known European to arrive were led by the explorer Magellan in 1521 (he was actually killed there). Four decades later, the Spanish began their conquest of the region. Manila dates back to 1571 and the city quickly became an important stop for trade between the Orient and Mexico. Though the Philippines had long been Muslim, the Spanish managed to convert nearly the entire population to Christianity (except for some of the southwestern area, where Islam continued to thrive). Though the Spanish empire viewed the Philippines as important, their rule was semi-eclipsed by the Catholic Church which became both wealthy and powerful in the Philippines. Eventually, the islands passed from Spanish rule to US control (after the Spanish American War in 1898) and after the US suppressed the Philippines initial bid for independence in a bloody six-year conflict, independence was finally granted in 1946. Politically, the Philippines has faced some rocky times in the second half of the 20th century. Ferdinand Marcos became president in 1966 and proceeded to concentrate extraordinary power in that office (he also extended it to his wife, Imelda). Corruption, poverty, and general unrest worsened until Marcos was forced to flee the country in 1986. Mrs. Corazon Aquino, widow of marcos opposition leader Benito, was declared president. Her decision not to run for reelection in 1992 resulted in an election victory for Fidel Ramos. The economy of the Philippines has been strong, emerging relatively unscathed from the Asian crisis of 1997-98. In 1999, Joseph Estrada was elected president.

    History The Negritos were the original inhabitants of the Philippines who arrived some 25,000 years ago. However, archaeological findings suggest that there were earlier settlers. There were other waves of migrations of Indo-Chinese, who were followed by the Malayans. In 1521, the Portuguese voyager Ferdinand Magellan arrived and found the islands to be thriving centers of commerce with traders from India, Arabia and China. Powerful Islamic influence was established in 1380 the Arab-taught Makdum. However, the arrival of Magellan who claimed the archipelago for Spain facilitated the growth of Christianity and the emergence of a new culture.
