Abad Baru Purbakala: Memilih Arah Menentukan Peran Penelitian Arkeologi di Maluku

Marlon NR Ririmasse


Abstract


A year has passed since the celebration of 100th years of Indonesian archaeology. On June 14th 2013, this golden moment was commemorated by institutions and individuals. The nostalgic euphoria has been transformed into the festive spirit of various events. Ranging from seminars to exhibitions. From small gatherings to the colosal stages. There is a pride that rised from the establishment of this 100th anniversary. This article tries to discuss the current situation in the Indonesian archaeology by dissect the anatomy of archaeological research in the Moluccas Archipleago. The ideas disscussed will cover the review of archaeological research in the Moluccas historically; followed by observing the recent activities  to understand the impacts of archaeological research for the region and its communities; and finally initiate the discussion on choosing the direction and the role of archaeological research for the academic and social purpose in the near future.


Tak terasa hampir setahun telah dilewati sejak perayaan satu abad purbakala Nusantara. Tepat tanggal 14 Juni 2013 silam, momentum emas ini diperingati segenap insan arkeologi Indonesia. Gempita nostalgia dikemas menjadi semangat perayaan dalam berbagai kegiatan. Mulai dari seminar sampai pameran. Sekedar sukuran hingga pentas kolosal. Ada kebanggaan yang membuncah dari angka mapan usia ke-100. Kini pesta telah usai. Segalanya kembali senyap.  Rasanya tepat untuk mulai merenung. Tentang makna menjadi lembaga dengan umur yang bahkan lebih sepuh dari negara. Memikirkan kembali kiprah pun capaian. Menemukenali kekurangan dan kendala. Adakah arkeologi akan terus mengalir dengan wawasan klasik business as usual? Ataukah memilih bercermin pada jernih kondisi kekinian dan bergegas membenahi diri? Makalah ini mencoba mengamati kondisi terkini arkeologi nasional dengan membedah anatomi penelitian arkeologi di Kepulauan Maluku dalam kerangka kronologis. Alur gagasan yang dibahas mencakup tinjauan atas rekam historis penelitian yang membentuk wajah arkeologi Maluku; dilanjutkan dengan mengamati aktivitas masa kini guna melihat aktualisasi studi arkeologi bagi kemajuan wilayah dan masyarakat; serta membuka ruang diskusi tentang memilih arah dan menentukan peran penelitian arkeologi bagi tujuan akademis dan sosial di masa mendatang.
