In 2008 a section of a Middle Iron Age cemetery was unearthed at Alsónyék (Tolna County, Hungary). The 16 graves can be dated broadly to the 5th and maybe the early 4th century BC. The significance of this discovery lies in the diversity of burial customs and grave goods as well as in the fact that sites from this period are relatively rare in Transdanubia. In addition, already these 16 graves make the cemetery the second largest Middle Iron Age graveyard in the region between the Kapos and Sava Rivers.
