East of the n–S reach of the Danube in Hungary, even east of the Tisza one can only sporadically come across relics of the renaissance stylistic period – certainly in close correlation with the events of the general mediaeval and early modern-age history, apart from the geographic situation. That explains why the exposure of new architectural details in the ground-floor space of the “Puszta Tower” of Fegyvernek built in the second half of the 15th century and only known so far for its facades already assessed in 1872. The imprint and fragmentary remains of the wall articulating architectural elements defined lately as remains of a pair of facing sedilia allude to the quondam representative interior of the room, and the details can be interpreted as an example of the coexistence of the gothic and the renaissance in Hungary.

The “find” is new proof of the existence of momentous buildings prior to the Ottoman occupation and also of the chance for research to explore their remains. The short account is a preliminary report on a partial result of excavations going on in Jász-nagykun-Szolnok County.
