Initially, for some experts, talking about Tanah Runcuk (Tanah Roentjoek, or Tanarundjuque) is like merely pissing in the wind. What is the relevance of reviving Tanah Runcuk in a scientific debate? Some scholars have regarded it as the fairy tale of the colonialists who “failed to move on”. Some groups believed that Tanah Runcuk had been buried and vanished by the 1883 massive eruption of Krakatoa.
