Abstract

No doubt Austronesians did move from Taiwan to Batanes and perhaps then directly to northern Luzon, but it is likely that this was just one small corner of expansive geographical mobility throughout the region. Solheim was recently told that an expedition to the Batanes had just returned with a report that they had found red-slipped pottery and jade, two of the hallmarks for regional Neolithic culture. ``Why not?'' he remarked. ``It's everywhere at that time, why not also in the Batanes?''
