The international scientific conference " WORLD-CONQUERING HUNS OF ASIA AND EUROPE", organised with the participation of internationally renowned scholars and researchers from seven countries (South Korea, the United States, the Netherlands, Hungary, Mongolia, Russia and Turkey), will be available online from 9 a.m. on 27 October and from 10 a.m. on 28 October.

The aim of the event, which presents the possible common Asian Hun origin of the Mongols and the Hungarians who arrived in the Carpathian Basin in the 9th and 10th centuries, and the latest archaeogenetic, anthropological, cultural-historical and archaeological evidence of this origin revealed in the framework of an international scientific cooperation, is to clarify - in the light of new research findings - that the Asian Huns (Xiongnus) and the European Huns are related: the descendants of a westward migrating empire-building people are the Mongols in the east and the Hungarians in the west.

Recognizing the extraordinary importance of the research results of genetics, the Institute of Hungarian Research started the excavation of Hun princely tombs with the Institute of Archaeology of the Mongolian Academy of Sciences as a new milestone of Hungarian prehistory research and as a continuation of the long-standing Mongolian-Hungarian cooperation with the aim to compare the anthropological finds with the Hungarian finds from the conquest period. In this way, the folklore legend recorded in our chronicles and widespread until the second half of the 19th century, that the Turul clan and the conquerors were descendants of the Huns, could be confirmed, scientifically verified and publicised.

The conference will be available on the website, Facebook page and YouTube channel of the Institute of Hungarian Research.
