"Analisis Daerah Asal Gerabah di Situs Topo dan Mareku, Pulau Tidore, Maluku Utara, berdasarkan Analisis Bentuk, Hiasan, dan Petrografi"

It's my undergraduate thesis, made for my bachelor degree in Archaeology. The thesis was about my research in Tidore Island. My research results in a new enlightment of pottery trading network between Tidore and Mare Island, along with an unknown group of pottery -maker in northern Moluccas. The trading activities between Tidore and these two groups might happened around 13th and 17th century. The technique and decoration patterns have been assumed to have connection with pottery from Morotai, Talaud, and Papua New Guinea regions.
