American archaeologist Wilhelm Solheim II (Wilhelm I was a famous botanist in his own right) has spent his career studying southeast Asian archaeology. Trained at the universities of California at Berkeley and Arizona, Solheim is considered a pioneer in the prehistoric archaeology of the Philippines and Southeast Asia; and is probably best known for his studies on domestication of the pig, about 6,000 BC in south east Asia. Retired from the University of Hawai'i in 1991, Solheim takes a key role in the Solheim Foundation, established to promote archaeology in the Philippines.
