A.D. 449. This year Marcian and Valentinian assumed the empire, and reigned seven winters. In their days Hengest and Horsa, invited by Wurtgern, king of the Britons to his assistance, landed in Britain in a place that is called Ipwinesfleet; first of all to support the Britons, but they afterwards fought against them. The king directed them to fight against the Picts; and they did so; and obtained the victory wheresoever they came. They then sent to the Angles, and desired them to send more assistance. They described the worthlessness of the Britons, and the richness of the land. They then sent them greater support. Then came the men from three powers of Germany; the Old Saxons, the Angles, and the Jutes... From Anglia, which has ever since remained waste between the Jutes and the Saxons, came the East Angles, the Middle Angles, the Mercians, and all of those north of the Humber. Their leaders were two brothers, Hengest and Horsa, who were the sons of Wihtgils; Wihtgils was the son of Witta, Witta of Wecta, Wecta of Woden. From this Woden arose all our royal kindred, and that of the Southumbrians also.

And so the Saxons came to Britain. Vortigern, who betrayed them, fell, and in time they took all the land in the east so that the dominion of the Britons was divided, and the Britons driven back in their kingdoms of Dumnonia, Powys, Gwent, Elmet and Brigantia. From these conquered lands rose Anglia, Ceint and Mierce. With them came new kings: Guercha One-Eye of the Angles, Aelle – the Bretwalda, and now, to challenge them both, Cerdic and his sons.
The Saxons bring new Gods and new Magic. They come to conquer and settle. They come to claim what Vortigern promised and failed to deliver. But most of all, they come to fight.
