Human activity in the Wrexham area dates back to the Mesolithic period (8000 - 4300 BC), one of the earliest finds from the Bronze Age was the discovery of Brymbo Man [here] who probably dates from around 1600 BC. 
 
Historically Wrexham is known as an old market town although in recent years there have been discoveries which date settlement in the area to Roman times. During the middle ages the villages as they were then grew and a town was born, the landmark that is St.Giles Church was built in 1462 & its steeple completed in 1506. 
 
Wrexham kept up with National trends over the years and became an important administrative centre during the middle ages, the towns position made it a suitable exchange point for produce of the Dee Valley and Denbighshire uplands, whilst iron & lead were also mined locally. 
 
One of Wales most historic figures is held of great importance to the town, Owain Glyndwr was the last native Welshman to hold the title Prince of Wales, he led a fierce and long-running revolt against the English rule of Wales. Ultimately he was unsuccessful but the legend remains and has acquired him the title of the father of Welsh Nationalism. Here is the first paragraph from the Glyndwr University website which was named after the great man: 
''Glyndŵr University started in 2008 so we’re still one of the youngest universities in the UK. We’re named after a Welsh scholar and hero called Owain Glyndŵr and we aim to champion some of the same philosophies as him'' 
 
* 18th Century - Wrexham was known for it leather Industry, there were many skinners & tanners in town 
* Late 18th Century - John Wilkinson [Iron Mad Wilkinson] open Bersham Foundry & a smelting plant in Brymbo 
* 19th Century - Coal Mining prospered and brought with it two major disasters in the area where local men lost their lives 
 
Between then and now like in most old Industrial towns across the UK traditional Industry has been replaced by modern employers, Wrexham has benefited from large employers in Engineering, Pharmaceutical, Electronics and Chemicals.
