Glasgow has a rich and diverse history dating back thousands of years. The area now known as Glasgow was settled by the Celts in the Bronze Age, and later by the Romans. The city itself was founded by the Christian missionary St. Mungo in the 6th century AD. In the Middle Ages, Glasgow grew into an important religious and educational center, and by the 13th century, it had become a royal burgh and a major center for trade and industry. The city continued to grow and flourish throughout the medieval period, and by the 19th century, it had become one of the largest and most important cities in Britain.

During the 18th century, Glasgow became a major center of shipbuilding and engineering. The city was a major player in the Industrial Revolution, and its shipyards, textile mills, and other industries brought great prosperity to the area. This period also saw the rise of the Glasgow's famous "Tenement" housing, as the population boomed with the influx of immigrants.

In the 20th century, Glasgow's industries continued to grow and evolve, and the city became a major center for heavy engineering, chemicals, and electronics. The city also developed a strong cultural identity, with the emergence of the "Glasgow School" of art and architecture, and the rise of the "Celtic Revival" movement.

Recently, Glasgow has undergone a process of regeneration, with a renewed focus on culture, tourism and services. Many of the old industrial buildings were repurposed and modern infrastructure was built, giving the city a new look and feel.

Overall Glasgow's history is a story of resilience, innovation and cultural expression, that has helped shape the city as it is known today
