Texel has a rich and dynamic history. In 1170, the island was flooded by the All Saints Flood. The first traces of humans on the island date back to the Mesolithic Period, 8000-4500 B.C. In 1415, Texel received city rights. Texel reached a pinnacle in the 17th and 18th century when the merchant ships procured supplies for their long journeys in the Reede van Texel. A low was reached in April/May of 1945 during the Georgian uprising; the final battle of W.W. II. A bloody battle was fought between the Germans and an insurrection of Georgian soldiers, while the rest of the Netherlands had already been liberated.
