Archaeology, Culture, and History: Concept and Potential as a Product of Heritage Tourism in Malaysia and Indonesia

  • Zuliskandar Ramli
Chapter

Abstract

Nowadays, many tourists want to see the history of the nation and their culture in it. Archaeology, history, and culture are seen as capable of contributing to national development especially when you associate with the heritage tourism. The three things are linked because the three have a strong bond. In my opinion, archaeology, history, and culture are in harmony of each other. This is because archaeology is part of history and cultural data, including the paleoenvironment data (ecofact), which are the primary data in archaeological research. However, this view would conflict with those who adhere to the idea that “archaeology is anthropology or it is not science.” In English, it is said that “archaeology is anthropology or it is nothing.” It is the faith of those who subscribe to the “New Archaeology” born in America.
