>>22287 Hungarian, semi-Hungarian and foreign linguists saw two possible main origins for he Hungarian language (therefore Hungarian people) one was the Finnic road the other the Turkic. Sharp debate ensued, the so called Ugric-Turkic War, and those "won" who supported the Finno-Ugric side. It's all fine but these linguists decided they also have authority over the research of Hungarian history. And archaeology. Instead of supporting it they started commandeering. The decision came and Hungarian historians in relation of Hungarian prehistory had to ignore every source written just about every folk that was labeled as "Iranian" (like Scythians) or "Turkic" (like Huns) and the area of the search for the Hungarian ancient homeland was first restricted the aread bordered by the Carpathians, Baltics, West-Siberia, Khazakhstan, Ciscaucasia, Black Sea, then it was further limited to the region of Volga-Ural-Ob and Southern Russia. Those who wandered out of these limits - both in region and sources - were labled disparagingly as dreamers or harshly as pseudo-scientific - basically this is how the "guidelines" were took shape and were enforced - and were forced out of the scientific community and was silenced. The origin of the Hungarians (and not just the language) became dogmatically Finno-Ugric and only recent times (I think past 1995) started the "official" researchers open up and look into other sources and other relations. Ofc there were many other ideas, hypotheses beside the Scytho-Hunnic origin (but usually linked to it), which had less foundation. There's almost no ethnicity on the Earth (except African ones, but I'm not entirely sure of this) which weren't named as a relative of ours, from the Jews to the Japanese but even further to Mayans. The ancient homeland was found everywhere, even on Mu and Atlantis. Also Sirius. Most of these ideas were come from people who didn't recieve historical (linguistical, archaeological) training, didn't have qualificaitons so it was very easy to push those among them who did have but had different ideas than the authoritive figures of science.
