Isolated finds from Marhát hill
Languages of publication
Marhát hill is a dominant of Považský Inovec hills and by its position it certainly used to be a significant place in older historical periods. Two important ways led in its vicinity, which connected Nitra and Váh river basins and were lines of trade and communication between these regions. Occurrence of iron ore at its eastern slopes was of the same relevance, too, and it remarkably influenced settlement of this area. A hill fort had been built there on the hilltop as soon as in the Late Bronze Age that was flowering mainly during the Iron Age. This is proved by finds of artefacts and pottery as well, which are dated to this time horizon. In later periods the site probably was not used so intensively, except for a short-term refuge or a watch point.
