The name of Gibraltar is Arabic, it was dedicated to Táriq Ibn Ziyad, a muslim general. It was conquered by the Christians in 1462. Many years later, after the War of Spanish Succession, Spain gave Gibraltar to the United Kingdom in the Treaty of Utrecht (1713), and the importance of the city started to grow: there was an important discovery: the skull of a Neandenthal child was found at the Rock in 1926. </li></ul>
