Abstract:

The aim of this paper is to present one of the metal finds arrived to the Museum of Orosháza, Hungary due to the metal detecting surveys conducted by civilian individuals. In Hungary, the situation of metal detecting is quite uncertain as the national protocol is still under development. Year after year, a lot of objects get into museums with the help of metal detectorists, a greater part of which are yet unknown regarding their function. In this paper, the author would like to present a bronze cast buckle divided into three parts which was found on the territory of the destroyed Medieval Szentetornya village, located 5 km north of the regional center, the town of Orosháza. As it is presented below, the function and the date of this artefact is yet to be determined.
