Welcome to the Cave of the Glowing Skulls.
Most of the photos of bones and artifacts were provided by Dr. Jim Brady. I was in the Talgua Cave in 1995 and 1996 but my cameras malfunctioned both times (some Curse of the Cave on visiting geophysicists?). The burial chamber is currently not open to tourists. It is too small for groups, the climb is perilous and the burials are very fragile.
I wish to thank the Instituto Hondureño de Antropología e Historia for permission to develop this Web site. Please send questions or comments (English or español) to Dr. Don Stierman.
