Gyula László (Kőhalom, 14 March 1910 – Nagyvárad (today: Oradea) 17 July 1998) was a Hungarian historian, archaeologist, artist, and university professor.

His main work is the disputed theory of "double incoming" of Hungarians to the Carpathian Basin in 5th and 9th century. The base of the theory is that Avar culture is similar, or sometimes identical to Hungarian culture, so the second incoming in 895, confirmed by all historians, must have been taking part after another 'incoming'. This is documented in all Hungarian chronicles, such as Chronicon Pictum.
