HUNGARIAN HISTORICAL CHRONOLOGY

THE SETTLEMENT OF THE CARPATHIAN BASIN

5000 BCE
The first of several waves of Near Eastern settlers appear in the Carpathian Basin, the territory of Historical Hungary. The archeological, anthropological, ethno-linguistic and historical evidence indicates that the Carpathian Basin was settled in successive waves from approximately 5000 BCE by the Neolithic, Copper and Bronze Age peoples originating from Anatolia, Transcaucasia and Mesopotamia, followed by the Turanian peoples of Central Eurasia: the Scythians (6th c. BC), the Huns (5th c. AD), the Avars (6th c. AD), the Magyars (9th c.), the Petchenegs (11th c.), and the Cumans (13th c.). These Turanian peoples originated from the same ancient Near-Eastern ethno-linguistic group as the Neolithic, Copper and Bronze Age settlers of the Carpathian Basin. The Hungarians are therefore the descendants of these Turanian peoples and of the original settlers of the Carpathian Basin.
