The Bristol area has been settled since the Stone Age and there is evidence of Roman occupation. Maritime connections to Wales, Ireland, Iceland, western France, Spain and Portugal brought a steady increase in trade in wool, fish, wine and grain during the Middle Ages. Bristol became a city in 1542 and trade across the Atlantic developed.
The city was captured by Royalist troops and then recaptured for Parliament during the English Civil War. During the 17th and 18th centuries, the transatlantic slave trade and the Industrial Revolution brought further prosperity. The late 18th and early 19th centuries saw the construction of a floating harbour, advances in shipbuilding and further industrialisation with the growth of the glass, paper, soap and chemical industries aided by the establishment of Bristol as the terminus of the Great Western Railway.
In the early 20th century, Bristol was in the forefront of aircraft manufacture and the city had become an important financial centre and high technology hub by the beginning of the 21st century.
