History[edit]

Ceramic pieces were found from the new stone age (3200–3000 BC) in the area of the Urasági-tag, the Bab-földek (bean fields) and the Rét-pótlék.

Ceramic pieces were found from the bronze age (1900–1800 BC) on the area of the Urasági-tag [ˈurɒʃaːɡitɒɡ] and the Szeder-völgyi-dűlő [ˈsedervølɟi ˈdyːløː]. On the 64 Erzsébet Street [ˈɛrʒeːbet] were found troves from the vatyai culture [ˈvɒcɒʲi] (1700–1400 BC).

A Celtic cemetery was dug out behind the strand, which is from the iron age (380–300 BC). Between the troves there are bracelets, fibulas, chiffons, a scabbard with sword, and chain.

During the third and the fourth century there was a Sarmatian village on the area of Csömör, both sides of the stream. During the explorations a Roman bowl (from the third century) and pottery were found.

Pieces of bowl were found on the area of the Réti-dűlős [ˈreːti ˈdyːløː] (singular: Réti-dűlő) and Rétpótlék [ˈreːtpoːtleːk] from the Avar age.

Ceramic pieces were found on the area of the Káposztáss [ˈkaːpostaːʃ] (singular: Káposztás) and Réti-dűlős, that were made during the tenth and the eleventh century.

Memorial of communism's victims[edit]

In 2006 the Gloria Victis Memorial was created in honor of the casualties of universal communism: it is situated adjacent to the cemetery of the town.
