Pengenalan

It has been noted in many writings that the study of history is significant in strengthening a nation’s foundations, especially those that relates to the socio-political aspects of a country or society. Like many other historical writings, it is imperative to note that problems are inevitable. In my point of view, such problems persists due to the nature of historical studies itself which requires one to study the past especially in the field of social research. Such problems include limited sources for reference, incomplete and limited evidence and reliability of information. For this study alone, although there are some literatures that mentioned about Brunei’s nomenclatures and its backgrounds, still there are needs to make cross referencing between literatures and oral traditions to come up with strong hypothesis.
