To effect the conjoined throwing of all the shuttles and the various other movements of the loom, the automatic action of the power-loom is necessary; and it is a remarkable fact that the self-acting ribbon loom was known and extensively used more than a century before the famous invention of Cartwright.

The origins of the city are subject to ongoing research. The first written record thought to refer to Gdańsk is the ''vita of Saint Adalbert (Adalbert (Archbishop of Magdeburg))''. Written in 999, it describes how in 997 Saint Adalbert of Prague baptized the inhabitants of ''urbs Gyddannyzc'', "which separated the great realm of the duke i.e. Boleslaw the Brave (Bolesław I Chrobry) of Poland from the sea." Loew, Peter Oliver: Danzig. Biographie einer Stadt, Munich 2011, p. 24. No further written sources exist for the 10th and 11th centuries. Based on the date in Adalbert's vita, the city celebrated its millennial anniversary in 1997. Wazny, Tomasz; Paner, Henryk; Golebiewski, Andrzej; Koscinski, Bogdan: Early medieval Gdansk Danzig revisited (EuroDendro 2004), Rendsburg 2004, pdf-abstract.

Archaeological evidence for the origins of the town was largely retrieved between 1948 and 1978, after World War II had laid 90% of the downtown districts in ruins and extensive surveys and excavations were carried out. Loew (2011), p. 24; Wazny et al. (2004), abstract. The oldest seventeen settlement levels were dated to between 980 and 1308. It is generally thought that Mieszko I of Poland erected a stronghold in the 980s, thereby connecting the Polish state (History of Poland (966–1385)) ruled by the Piast dynasty with the trade routes of the Baltic Sea. The dates assigned to the oldest finds have been questioned, resulting in a verification survey in 2003, re-evaluating old finds and also examining new sites on the basis of dendrochronology. None of the remains of the medieval stronghold date to before the 1050s 1060s. Loew (2011), p. 27; Wazny et al. (2004), abstract. Loew (Peter Oliver Loew) (2011) asked if there maybe was an earlier, not yet located stronghold, and said that the identified stronghold site, consisting of a fort and a suburbium covering 2.7 ha (hectare) which may have held 2,200 to 2,500 inhabitants, does not only lack finds from before 1060, but that no material from after the mid-12th century has been retrieved from the fort. Loew, Peter Oliver: Danzig. Biographie einer Stadt, Munich 2011, p. 27. Loew adds that traces of settlement dating to the 10th century have been found in parts of today's Gdańsk outside said stronghold. Loew, Peter Oliver: Danzig. Biographie einer Stadt, Munich 2011, pp. 27–28.
