A little history ...

The presence of man is as old as evidenced by human traces back to antiquity. For several centuries, the territory is attached to the French nobility. The textile industry is developed in the 19th century. Water mills established along the Thue, who still operate until 1945, the son and treat textiles but also the grain. After the First World War, farmers settled on the Belgian territory. Spared during the Second World War, although very close to landing beaches, Amblie assists in Caen hosting a refugee center and injured thousands of victims.
