Abstract: In the end of the Iron Age, the Middle Danube region saw a significant change in the ethnic composition of its population. From the second half of the 5th century BC, the area was gradually settled by Celtic tribes. Later, in the Late La Tène period, its favourable position at the crossroads of long-distance roads attracted the Boii tribe, who raised an oppidum on the Bratislava castle hill. Several settlements were established in the larger hinterland of the oppidum. One of them is the settlement at Zlaté Piesky, where a notable concentration of worked bones and antler was recorded during an archaeological excavation.
