Question?

Does anyone know what kind of weapons were used in the Philippines prior to European contact. I have read that Ferdinand Magellan was killed by a kampilan wielding warrior another version says a bamboo spear. So what are the earliest weapons known to be used by the Moros and other groups and when did they appear? What I am trying to establish is some type of time line and migration of the use of steel weapons that seems to have started in India and spread eastward to the Indonesian archipelago and the Philippines.
