In the 5th century, when the Roman occupation of England came to an end, the settlement became part of Northumbria, an Anglo-Saxon kingdom. Eschewing the Roman name of Pons Aelius for the name Monkchester, the town lasted for a while until the Normans arrived when it was mostly destroyed during conflict with the Danes. On the devastated site, the New Castle was built, mainly as a fortification against further attack. The town was named after it.
