When more and more evidences of the existence of the archipelago between civilizations and world affairs were found, this immediately gave rise to a fetakompli perspective of reading and writing about the history of the archipelago. Tracing the history of the archipelago should have been carried out in parallel with a review of historical events in other worlds, namely local, regional, international reciprocity patterns. This is because history is formed from various networks of events that influence each other from time to time, continue to connect, and penetrate geographic boundaries between countries and nations.
The groups of islands in the archipelago cannot be called separate places, alienating each other, and living without interaction with one another. The sea that surrounds the islands of the archipelago actually acts as a wide way to connect the various cultures of the world around it. Likewise, rivers have become a means of delivering various civilizations through, to and from the interior.
Through this mutually influencing pattern, a complex arrangement of the elements underlying the emergence of various historical events will be seen; where it can be seen, that history in the archipelago does not contain cultural boxes that stand alone and are isolated from the outside world. Its strategic geographical location and abundant natural wealth have made cities in the archipelago become melting pots for various ethnic and national identities.
