Tunneling Through the Pandemic: 2019-2020 Investigations of Colonial-Period Alcantarilla from Intramuros

By Timothy James Vitales
National Museum of the Philippines

Right before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, a report of colonial period features unearthed during a road rehabilitation project caught the attention of the National Museum of the Philippines. Thru the Archaeology Division, the NMP investigated and documented these tunnel structures exposed underneath the main roads of Intramuros, revealing its construction and stories of its deposition. This lecture will present the archaeological activities of the NMP at the walled city before and during the global pandemic, providing you with a glimpse of the sewage system of Colonial Manila and some relevant details that we learned from the artifacts recovered from it.
