In the 18th century it was a Slovakian settlement. The village reached its present form in the 19th century. In 1960 the first bone fragments and tools were found. Then Laszlo Vertes discovered the prehistoric site. The people gave the name: „Samu” to the found prehistoric man, because it was discovered on Samuel's day. According to the expert, the caveman used fire, because the found bones were burned. The site is known worldwide as a half million year old settlement. Today there is a museum in the area.
