In nearby forest there are remnants of pre- Great Moravian inhabitation (locality called Valy) where ancient artifacts from the era of Christianization of Slovakia were found, notably 6 gold-coated plaquettes of Italian origin (the region of Aquileia) from the beginning of the 9th century. The artifacts prove Christianization efforts in the area before arrival of St. Cyril and Methodius in 862. The artifacts are displayed in Ponitrianske múzeum of Nitra. Local museum was opened in August 2007. Valy locality is currently being researched by an international archaeologist team.
The village itself was first mentioned in 1424, though an incorporated settlement Malé Dvorany was first mentioned in the end of the 12th century.

Famous quotes containing the word history:
“Properly speaking, history is nothing but the crimes and misfortunes of the human race.”
—Pierre Bayle (16471706)
“I believe that in the history of art and of thought there has always been at every living moment of culture a will to renewal. This is not the prerogative of the last decade only. All history is nothing but a succession of crisesMof rupture, repudiation and resistance.... When there is no crisis, there is stagnation, petrification and death. All thought, all art is aggressive.”
—Eugène Ionesco (b. 1912)
“... that there is no other way,
That the history of creation proceeds according to
Stringent laws, and that things
Do get done in this way, but never the things
We set out to accomplish and wanted so desperately
To see come into being.”
—John Ashbery (b. 1927)
