HomeBlogs Skull Caves Like in much of SW Maluku, caves containing skulls and skeletonsare
scattered around the island. Two large caves near Adaut have now been
sealed by zelous local Christians, but across the bay others remain
intact. As usual, the locals claim to have no memories as to whose
bones these caves contain: they could be either ancient burial sites of
the locals, or the remains of enemies slain back in the headhunting era.
