    Bruges was a lo­ca­tion of coastal set­tle­ment dur­ing pre­his­tory. This Bronze Age and Iron Age set­tle­ment is un­re­lated to me­dieval city de­vel­op­ment. In the Bruges area, the first for­ti­fi­ca­tions were built after Julius Cae­sar's con­quest of the Menapii in the first cen­tury BC, to pro­tect the coastal area against pi­rates. The Franks took over the whole re­gion from the Gallo-Ro­mans around the 4th cen­tury and ad­min­is­tered it as the Pagus Flan­dren­sis. The Viking in­cur­...

Dur­ing the 17th cen­tury, the lace in­dus­try took off, and var­i­ous ef­forts to bring back the glo­ri­ous past were made. Dur­ing the 1650s, the city was the base for Charles II of Eng­land and his court in exile.The mar­itime in­fra­struc­ture was mod­ern­ized...
