In the course of the last two decades two small cemeteries, which can safely be associated with the ancestors of the Hungarians, have been discovered in Ukraine. One is located at Subboticy near Kirovograd (former Elizavetgrad) on the Ingul, the other at Korobchino near Dnepropetrovsk on the Dneper. The two sites allow us to identify with greater precision the geography of Magyar settlements in the 9th century (the Levedia or Etelköz mentioned by Emperor Constantine VII Porphyrogenetos). The finds enable us to gain a better understanding of the culture of the Magyars in the migration period and, in consequence, offer an insight into the distinctive identity of Magyars among other steppe cultures of Eastern Europe. As a result of a series of studies it has been possible to establish the presence of Sogdian, Iranian, Islamic and late-Roman-Byzantine stylistic inspirations in the 9th-century Magyar art.
