In the Late Bronze Age and Early Iron Age a variety of settlements and cemeteries of the surviving population are known in Nógrád County. However, the presence of Scythian invaders meant a numerical minority compared to the autochthonous population. Newcomers with equestrian combat tactics and a range of weapons were ensured in the success of their conquest.
