SURPRISE FIND IN BUDAPEST

Major contribution to knowledge

It is at least possible that the large tomb just unearthed by construction works in Budapest is that of the sixth-century Scourge of God, Attila the Hun. A sword found there just might be his own.

Whoever occupied the tomb, this is as a find of considerable importance. If it is confirmed to have been Attila himself, this accidental find is of world significance.

NB, despite the similarity of the words, identifying 'Hungarian' with 'Hun' is a false etymology. The Magyars arrived in the Carpathian basin some four centuries later.
