There is still a large area of marshland northwest of the town, which has always been subject to flooding, such as in 1947, 20.Until recently it was thought that the remains of a wooden preaching cross from this time had been found under the remains of St Bertelin's chapel, next to the later collegiate Church of St Mary in the centre of the town.At around this time the county of Staffordshire was formed. In 1069, a rebellion by Eadric the Wild against the Norman conquest culminated in the Battle of Stafford.Two years later another rebellion, this time led by Edwin, Earl of Mercia, culminated in Edwin's assassination.Stafford was one of Æthelflæd's military campaign bases and extensive archaeological investigations, and recent re-examination and interpretation of that evidence now shows her new burh was producing, in addition to the Stafford Ware pottery, food for her army (butchery, grain processing, baking), coinage and weaponry, but apparently no other crafts and there were few imports.
Stafford Castle was built by the Normans on the nearby hilltop to the west in about 1090.
Recent re-examination of the evidence shows this was a misinterpretation – it was a tree-trunk coffin placed centrally in the first, timber, chapel at around the time Æthelflæd founded the burh, in 913 AD.
The tree-trunk coffin may have been placed there as an object of commemoration or veneration of St Bertelin.
Tenements were laid out over the whole peninsula and trade and crafts flourished until the early 14th century, when there was another upset probably associated with the plague of Black Death, which was followed in the mid 16th century by another revival.
In 1206 King John granted a Royal Charter which created the borough of Stafford.
