Although Caesar recorded Belgic raiders to England who may have settled there, it is now thought to indicate payments for military service, close cultural links and trading ties as well as gifts cementing political or social alliances across the Channel. It is thought that there were two separate peoples in Suffolk at this period, with a boundary roughly from Newmarket to Stowmarket and Aldburgh. To the north were the Iceni, and in the south the Trinovantes.

The shrine was destroyed in During the 11th century a stone church was built in Bury St. Edmunds, which was replaced by a larger church in , into which Edmund’s relics were translated.

The shrine at Bury St Edmunds soon became one of the most famous and wealthy pilgrimage locations in England. In , Edmund’s remains were translated to London to protect them from the Vikings, where they were kept for three years before being returned to Bury. In , he made a pilgrimage and offered his own crown upon the shrine as atonement for the sins of his forefathers.
The town arose as the wealth and fame of the abbey grew. After the Norman conquest of England in , the abbot planned out over new houses within a grid-iron pattern at a location that was close to the abbey precincts. According to a letter which now belongs to the Cotton Collection in the British Library , the shrine was defaced, and silver and gold to the value of over marks was taken away.
