According to a report from Inquirer, the National Museum of the Philippines or NMP in Bohol announced that the archaeological sites and petrography of the island in the said province are deemed valuable to the country.

Described as Bohol’s “cradle of civilization”, the Lamanok is known for its rocks with prehistoric graffiti and caves with several boat coffins and fossilized giant shells. In the pre-Colonization period, the island is a holy spot for folk healers.

It is, by far, the first locality in Bohol that has been declared an Important Cultural Property or ICP for short.

An ICP is defined by Article II Section 3 of Republic Act No. 10066 or RA 10066 as a cultural property having exceptional cultural, artistic, and historical significance to the Philippines.

The official declaration, as well as a marker, based on the report, has yet to be placed on the island.
