Trinil 2 is the fossilized upper cranium of the species Homo erectus.
It was discovered in Trinil, Indonesia by Eugene Dubois in 1891.
Dubois initially classified it as Pithecanthropus erectus but it was reclassified in the 1950s by Ernst Mayr when he combined Pithecanthropus and Sinanthropus into Homo erectus.
The Jakarta Post - The Journal of Indonesia Today (894 words)
Trinil, born on July 27, 1965, has written the poem in Surabaya dialect and uses a traditional, sentimental style to describe her criticism of young people in Surabaya who have forgotten their indigenous culture.
Although she may be considered a newcomer in modern Javanese literature, Trinil, who also teaches at the school of pedagogy at Surabaya State University, is unique as a writer.
If you compare Trinil's work with that of other writers that also features Surabaya, then you will find that her works are not only rich in Surabaya dialect but are also laden with the cultural values of the city.
