Designing for Cyclists (Web Site) Camden Cycling Campaign

Horton asked some time ago (14-1) where Cymenesora was- Aelle's
to the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle (AD 477) three Saxon ships arrived in a part
of Britain which was to be later known as Sussex at a place called Cymenes
ora. King Aelle (d. c. 514) accompanied by three sons Cymen, Wlenca and
Cissa landed from Gaul (France). In 465 (485) they fought the British at

answer is, in part at least, place-names. A pertinent study is "The Anglo-Saxon
Traveller" by Ann Cole in Nomina vol. 17 (1994); she has produced a series
