Guam - The University of Guam's Micronesian Area Research Center will be going to Cebu, Philippines later this year to take part in an archeological project there. According to MARC director Dr. John Peterson, a group from Guam will be conducting research at the Plantation Bay Resort. He says there's a cave about 120' underwater where some they may find some artifacts.

He told KUAM News, "It was above water, believe it or not - 22,000 years ago when the Ice Age and the glaciers were taking up all the water from the oceans. And we think there's a pretty good chance for human habitation in that cave. National Geographic gave us some money to go and do some early stage exploration."

Divers will also assist MARC with the assessment, which will take place sometime in May.
