Archaeological sites from the Paleolithic and Neolithic ages have been discovered giving evidence to early human settlement. The first written record of the town's name comes from 1220. However, the exact date of its incorporation remains unknown. Indirect written sources indicate that it most probably took place between 1279 and 1286. This assumption is supported by two documents from the 13th century: a charter issued in 1279 by Bolesław V in which the locality is still called a village ("villa episcopalis") and an agreement dated 1286 between the Bishop of Cracow Paul of Przemanków and Leszek II the Black, in which Sławków is already called a town ("civitas").
