Abstract

The Sangiran area World Heritage is a famous archaeological site worldwide. Sangiran site has important significance for the development of Indonesia's history and culture from the earliest times. However, Sangiran site has not been used optimally for historical learning activities, research, and tourism. The advantages of Sangiran have not contributed significantly to the welfare of the people living around. Consequently, illegally fossil taking and trading are common in Sangiran. This study examines the revitalization efforts of Sangiran site through the tourism development based on local people. By using participant observation and in-depth interview as well as focus group discussion (FGD), this research found several things: first, Sangiran area has a uniqueness that can be developed into the attraction of special interest tourism. Second, the development of ancient tour in Sangiran is still fully managed by the local government, so it has not involved many local people yet. This is related to the status of Sangiran as a protected area so that the people cannot freely develop the tourism. Nevertheless, the people continue to be enhanced their role gradually in revitalizing Sangiran site through the tourism activities.
