If ever you’re curious about prehistoric life in the Philippines, and you want to start a reading habit, look no further: the National Museum of the Philippines is offering a free e-book on fossils.

You are free to request a copy of Fossils: Records of Prehistoric Life in the Philippines on the National Museum website.

According to the National Museum on Facebook: “Fossils are the remains of ancient plants and animals preserved in rocks that are at least 10,000 years old. They were once parts of living organisms, such as shells, bones, teeth, leaves, and flowers from long ago. Fossils can also be traces like leaf imprints, footprints, burrows, nests, tracks, and trails, or even poops.”

It adds, “The book introduces people to the amazing fossil discoveries in the Philippines as represented by the specimens from the National Geological and Paleontological Collections housed at the National Museum of Natural History.”

A print edition will be available sometime this year.

There are other e-books available for free apart from Fossils: Records of Prehistoric Life in the Philippines. There’s The Basi Report, Hibla ng Lahing Pilipino: The Artistry of Philippine Textiles, Treasures of Philippine Art, All Out Peace Not War, Lumad Mindanao, and The Philippine Colonial Tradition of Sacred Art.
