Quern stones and other artefacts from Scandinavia and the Rhineland have been found during excavations in Norwich city centre. The Normans established a new focus of settlement around the Castle and the area to the west of it: this became known as the "New" or "French" borough, centred on the Normans' own market place which survives to the present day as Norwich Market.
In 1096, Herbert de Losinga, Bishop of Thetford, began construction of Norwich Cathedral.
Mercian coins and shards of pottery from the Rhineland dating from the 8th century suggest that long-distance trade was happening long before this.
Between 924 and 939, Norwich became fully established as a town, with its own mint.
The magistracy in Tudor Norwich unusually found ways of managing religious discord whilst maintaining civic harmony.
The year 1549 saw an unprecedented rebellion in Norfolk.
Around this time, the city was made a county corporate and became the seat of one of the most densely populated and prosperous counties of England. Hand-in-hand with the wool industry, this key religious centre experienced a Reformation significantly different to other parts of England.
The chief building material for the Cathedral was limestone, imported from Caen in Normandy.
To transport the building stone to the site, a canal was cut from the river (from the site of present-day Pulls Ferry), all the way up to the east wall.
Herbert de Losinga then moved his See there to what became the cathedral church for the Diocese of Norwich. Norwich received a royal charter from Henry II in 1158, and another one from Richard the Lionheart in 1194.
Following a riot in the city in 1274, Norwich has the distinction of being the only complete English city to be excommunicated by the Pope.
