Abstract: The Palawan Island Palaeohistoric Research Project (PIPRP) started in 2003 in the main island of Palawan, the largest westernmost island of the Philippines. In the first two years of the project the work concentrated more in the south and central parts of the island, at the Rio Tuba-Bataraza area, and in the Quezon district. These early initiatives were mostly consisted of surveys, site assessments, and palaeoenvironmental sampling. Since 2004, work concentrated in the northern end of the island, within the municipality of El Nido. The research is primarily led from the Archaeological Studies Program at the University of the Philippines (UP-ASP), and the National Museum of the Philippines (NM). For the season of 2010, the project continued to focus on an area covered by the Municipality of El Nido, expanding from its previous locus within the Dewil valley, New Ibajay, to include the area around Barangay Sibaltan, and within the town proper of El Nido. Like in previous years, the various research interests of the UPASP, the NM, and the scholars/research institutions from abroad were accommodated within the broad framework of the project.
