The National Museum of Anthropology has a room for Baybayin-related artifacts and records. What’s really amazed me is, they have a different collection of ancient writing system not only the Baybayin but also Hanunuod and Buhid. Some were written in Bamboo and wooden idols.
4. The Laguna Copper
One of the most precious treasures that will probably tell the lifestyle of early people who live here in the Philippines during 10th century AD is the Laguna Copper-plate, a thin piece of copper sheet with a written script found on Lumbang River, Laguna De Bay. The type of script used in the Laguna Copperplate Inscription has been identified as Early Kawi Script, which is basically a writing system that originated in the Indonesian island of Java.
