This paper by the author is the result of years o interest in this particular field. It ia an attempt to place certain cultural facts in the archaeological history of Honduras. It is, further an attempt to link some of the aborigines with archaeological remains from certain sections of the country: namely, the people who dwelt in the present departments of colon, parts of Olancho, Atlanitida, Yoro, Cortes, parts of Comaygua and parts of Santa Barbara. From this wide territory, the writer believes it is possible to obtain an idea of the people responsible for the archaeological types. In addition, certain digressions into the present republics of El Salvador and Nicaragua when the historical or archaeological facts present the opportunity or raise the necessity to connect them with Honduras. It has been pointed out that the ethnological boundaries do not coincide in some cases with the present national boundaries.
Corners bumped and rubbed else very good.
