By the mid-4th century and into the 5th century, CE. Germanic Saxon seafarers had begun the regular invasion of Roman-held Britain. A common passage was through the English Channel, along the coast of Dover in Kent toward landing places in Sussex. This painting could represent the arrival of the Saxon leader Ælle at a place called Cymenshore on the Sussex shore in three ships with his three sons in 477.
