Abstract

One of the relics that are considered as tangible results of the written evidence that still exists is the manuscript. The text contains a document of thoughts, feelings, and knowledge of a nation that produces the text itself. Therefore, the text is also a cultural product that can relatively provide information about the perspectives, attitudes, and behavior of a nation that lived in its day. Thus, Herman Soemantri (1979: 1) says that ancient manuscripts are a source of knowledge that can support our efforts in studying, knowing, understanding, and then presenting the development of the nation's culture. Most ancient manuscripts are kept in palaces, royal families, communities, libraries and museums. This study uses a qualitative descriptive methodology by describing various facts found in the field. The results of this study describe the various conditions of the ancient manuscripts in Bandar Cimanuk Museum. This research is expected to provide an overview of what can be done to preserve ancient manuscripts in Bandar Cimanuk Museum.
