The aim of the dissertation was to process the agricultural iron tools that were found in the Sarmatian Age settlement of Oszlár–Nyárfaszög. Based on the datable objects found in the settlement, the upper chronological boundary of the settlement was the end of the 4th century – beginning of the 5th century. Five agricultural tools came to light from different features spread throughout the site. In addition to a ploughshare, there were three tools without parallels which can be used as either a reed cutter or a scythe. The fifth tool could be either a reed cutter or a scythe or a sickle, too. Additionally, I have assembled a list of tools from the Hungarian Barbaricum. Since Róbert Müller’s fundamental work on agricultural iron tools, no works summarising the subject were written. Research on agricultural tools has become peripheral, only a handful of articles contained new details since then, even though many recent findings have been reported on large scale preventive excavations in the past few years. Thanks to the pieces presented now, we have more than doubled the number of these types of tools known so far. Based on the collected tools a rather diverse image emerges both in terms of type and form. There are several unique pieces among Celtic and Roman finds in the Carpathian Basin and its region. As for the origin of the collected assets, there are Celtic, Roman, Germanic, and eastern types, based on which one can conclude there was an extensive, diverse agriculture in the Barbarian environment of Hungary.
