Following report and its succeeding pages should be used with caution because some bits of information may not be applicable at present. For example, "kagayhaan" is no longer viewed by historians as the origin of "cagayan". Moreover, the report may not be used as basis for Archaelogical Impact Assessments (AIA).

The List of Figures and the List of Plates are linked to only two illustrations because the photocopied references are vague.

This report is republished online with the hope that whatever remains of our heritage will be saved and protected by concerned residents and public officials.
