History 

Based on the evidence of the archeological finds excavated here, Csorna has been inhabited since prehistoric times. According to the finds, it has been depopulated several times over the years, but since the 10th century it has been continuously inhabited. In the 5th – 6th century BC, the area was taken over by the Celts from the west . The legions of the Roman Empire subjugated the Celts during the reign of the Roman emperor Augustus and the area became part of the empire as Pannonia . The Mithras statue from this period is an archaeological find of outstanding importance. Since the migration of the people stationed here Roman legionsin many cases it was attacked by barbarian tribes, so the Romans withdrew the troops to Italy , and thus the incoming Germanic, Hun, and Avar tribes could gradually occupy the countryside. From this age comes the Hun princely tiad made of gold , which was found in the clay pit of the provostal brick factory in Csorna and this find can be seen in the Hungarian National Museum today . There were also Avars living in the area of ​​the city at that time, as evidenced by the Avar tomb excavated in Laky Döme Street.
