Bosnia and Herzegovina was first settled in the Neolithic and later in the Bronze Age by the Illyrians. The Illyrians and Romans had had a dispute in the third millennium B.C., and by 9 A.D. the Romans had fully conquered the area. After the division of the Roman Empire in the later 300s, the Ostrogoths took over the area only to surrender it to the Alans and Huns in recent years.
In the early Middle Ages Emperor Justinian captured the area and took it over for the Byzantine Empire. Unfortunately, this constant change of hand did not stop for Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Avars and Slavs quickly broke in. The most important capture, however, came from the Ottoman Empire in 1463.
The Ottomans brought monuments to the Ottoman Empire's politics and culture, and although the Ottomans had otherwise been ruined, the Ottomans enabled the Ottomans to maintain its own nation. As the Ottoman Empire expanded further through Central Europe, Bosnia experienced a long time of wealth. At the end of the seventeenth centuary the misfortune of the Ottoman Empire brought Bosnia, and in 1878 the land was integrated into the Austro-Hungarian Empire by the Treaty of Berlin.
Over the next thirty years, there was an increase in tension as the BiH area pressed for autonomy. Though it was the epicentre of the attack, Bosnia and Herzegovina came largely unscathed by the First World War. At the end of the war, Bosnia and Herzegovina, together with the Kingdom of Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia, constituted the Kingdom of Yugoslavia.
