The Institute of Hungarian Research, one of the flagships of the strengthening of national identity, has achieved a paradigm shift in research on prehistory.


"This is the debt we owe to János Hunyadi and to all the Hungarian heroes who died for the homeland, as well as to those who are still serving the homeland as soldiers today", Csaba László Hidán, our archaeologist-historian researcher, told daily Magyar Nemzet, when asked about how it felt to raise János Hunyadi's battle flag at the site of the Battle of Kosovo.


Gábor Tóth, a journalist of vasarnap.hu, asked Zsuzsanna Borvendég, a research fellow at the Research Centre for History, about the food supply disaster resulting from the failed land policy of the Communist Party.


The analysis of the bones of the eight royal dynasties in the Székesfehérvár ossuary is expected to be completed by the end of next year, Gábor Horváth-Lugossy told daily newspaper, Magyar Nemzet. 


From Aragon to Thuringia, from Naples to Thessaloniki, from Byzantium to Poland, from Sicily to the Kievan Rus  “We have much to be proud of. The map showing the princesses who were married abroad from Hungary and were married here from abroad shows a country and a dynasty with lively diplomatic relations with the whole of Europe.

"Those who changed the political regime considered the dismantling of the party-state institutions as their main task. Perhaps they didn't even notice that Western capitalist forces had been controlling the process since the 1980s."

More and more people are realising that we are heading towards a linguistic-cultural collapse as well as a disaster threatening the Earth's wildlife. On the occasion of the International Mother Language Day, we would also like to draw attention to the fact that the two accelerating but perhaps not (entirely) irreversible processes of destruction are linked at several points.


When graduate student Noah Hahn was invited to a conference halfway around the world, he didn’t realize it would become the birthplace of an international academic society—and that he would become one of its inaugural members. “It turned out to be the happiest accident of my graduate school career,” said Hahn, a doctoral student in philosophy at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. 


Interview about the results of the Institute of Hungarian Studies, new projects, headwinds, scientific canons, the past and present of Hungarian prehistory research. -Tibor Franka interviewed Gábor Horváth-Lugossy, Director General, in the weekly magazine, Magyar Demokrata. The fact is that the Institute of Hungarian Research has succeeded where others have not. 


"The theory that a single Hungarian-speaking block moved in the Carpathian Basin in 895 and absorbed a single, non-Hungarian-speaking indigenous population has been disproved. Based on written sources related to the ancient Hungarian script, the so-called Runic script, it can be stated that there were people in the Avar Empire who spoke Hungarian, and since their language has survived, they could not have been few in number, told Dr Bence Fehér, head of the Centre for Classical Philology at the Institute of Hungarian Research to weekly magazine, Demokrata."
