The Philippine History Portal


Philippine History.svg

History is a branch of knowledge which chronologically records the events and development of a nation and its people. It is either the study of the past, or the product of man's attempt to understand the past and correlate it to the present. It has three important elements: people (social space), place (geographical space) and time (ordinal space).

The WikiPilipinas portal on Philippine History serves as a memory bank storing anything and everything about the country's rich and diverse past. It includes the countless personalities (both renowned and forgotten), momentous places (including battlefields and landmarks), memorable events (in order of occurrence) and heraldic objects (like national symbols and prehistoric artifacts) involved in shaping the otherwise astounding history of the Philippines. A comprehensive content outline is provided to work as a guide to contributors and readers alike interested in making this portal even richer and reliable.
