As we know, there is a theory and history of ancient scriptures inherited from the Javanese human ancestor which explains that the origin of the Javanese comes from Homo eretus javanikus, which was first put forward by archaeologists. They believe that the ancestors of the Javanese are indigenous people who lived millions of years ago on this island of Java.

Java Man (Homo erectus erectus) is the first Homo erectus species to be discovered. At the beginning of the discovery, this human-like creature was given the scientific name Pithecanthropus erectus by Eugène Dubois, the team leader who managed to find its fossilized skull in Trinil, Ngawi in 1891. The name Pithecanthropus erectus itself comes from Greek and Latin roots and means ape-man which means can stand.

Based on various studies, archaeologists found several ancient human fossils believed to be the origins of the Javanese, such as Pithecanthropus Erectus and Homo Erectus. DNA tests were carried out on the fossils with present-day Javanese, the DNA results stated that there were no major differences between them.

This was finally believed by archaeologists and the Javanese government to be the origins of the early ancestors of the Javanese.

thousands of years later homo eretus evolved and intermarried with the Tamil Kalingga people. This is reinforced by historical records of the Javanese tribe originating from the Draveda people, the Dravedans are a people who live in southern India, according to their complete writings, the Javanese ancestors were descendants of the Tamil Draveda Keeling Kalingga, South India, which lost the war. It can be said that the Javanese are Hindus from among the Shudras, Pariahs and Dalits.

It is said that the Javanese people came from the Keling or Kalingga Kingdom in South India. One of the Princes of the Keling Kingdom who was left out due to a power struggle left the kingdom and was followed by his followers.

Prince Keling went very far from the kingdom. Finally Prince Keling found a small uninhabited island and worked together to build a settlement with his followers, which later this island was named Javacekwara. This makes the descendants of the prince and his followers considered the ancestors of the Javanese tribe.
