Dawn Wind is a novel first published by Oxford University Press in 1961, illustrated by Charles Keeping. It concerns a British thrall to a Saxon family, who witnesses the final defeat of the Roman Britons and the arrival of St. Augustine, apostle to the Saxons.

It is the sixth novel about the Flavius Aquila family chronologically and the fifth in publication order.


Owain, a fourteen-year-old boy, is the sole survivor of the Romano-British princes' last stand against Ceawlin of the West Saxons. Stabbed and concussed, he retrieves his father's dolphin signet ring and a single young Dog of Kyndylan's war-hounds, and in hopes of finding other survivors staggers north to Glevum, where the citizenry is fleeing the Saxon advance (1). He staggers on northwestward towards Viroconium, Kyndylan's seat, but loses his way in the hills and collapses at the farm of Priscus and Priscilla, who nurse him for weeks (2). After he recovers enough to walk, Priscilla drags him to church Service, where he is blessed by an eloquent preacher who tells him that Ceawlin has overrun the British cities around the Sabrina river. Owain resolves to press on to Viroconium in search of fighting men, but Priscilla offers him "a son's place by the hearth" if he ever returns (3).

Owain reaches Viroconium, but finds it empty, abandoned by its citizens and burned by Saxons (4). The only remaining resident is Regina, a beggar with no where else to go, who begs some game off of Owain and shares with him a store of barley on which she has survived and which she feeds to the wild birds (5). In spring, as Owain ponders how to convince the city-bred Regina to move on from Viroconium, a crew of British cattle-raiders camps in the Forum and hunts them through the town (6). Hiding in the hypocaust of a burnt house, they discover the owner's body, and resolve at last to flee to the British settlements in Gaul. As they cannot afford passage, they decide to head southeast to the shortest crossing – directly into Saxon territory (7). Regina falls ill with lung-sickness as they reach they sea, and Owain takes her to a Saxon farm where he offers to become a thrall in exchange for nursing her. The farmer does not want another thrall, but Beornwulf, a traveller, pays the farmer for him and Dog, and they leave Regina behind, along with Owain's signet ring (8).

A year later, Beornwulf's foster brother Haegel the king of the South Saxons visits Beornstead on the birth of Beornwulf's fouth child and discusses whether Ceawlin of the West Saxons poses a threat to the South, and the likelihood of trouble to Ceawlin from his nephews Coel and Coelwulf in the west and the High King Aethelbert of Kent (9). Two years later, Owain delivers a white foal with the help of Vadir Cedricson, an unpleasant neighbour who explains that the foal is sacred to Frey and will become the stallion of the king's horse herd before, someday, being sacrificed (10). Three years later, after the horse Teitri has been broken, they take him to the king, to Owain's displeasure; on returning home, Dog is attacked by Vadir Cedricson's hound, and Owain has to put him down (11). He buries Dog in the ruined shrine to Silvanus, and, close to despair over the loss, discovers a mosaic of Spring that reminds him so strongly of Regina that he determines to go on living (12).

Beornwulf is sent to give Teitri as a gift to Aethelbert the High King in Kent, leaving Beornstead in Owain's charge, and returns in a ship that is wrecked on the Seal Strand, but is rescued by Owain (13). Beornwulf offers Owain his freedom, and Owain offers him another winter's service in exchange for his freedom and a sword in the spring, when the king sends out the war-summons against Ceawlin (14). Beornwulf, Owain, Vadir, and the rest of the South Saxon fighting men gather at the King's Hall, and Owain discovers only after taking his oath that the British have also raised a host in the west in alliance with Coel, sending Einon Hen as envoy to Haegel (15). Coel sends Owain as messenger to Gerontius of Powys to coordinate their attack on Ceawlin at Wodensbeorg, and though they prevail, Beornwulf is mortally injured and asks Owain to stay at Beornstead until Bryni is fifteen (16).

Three years later, at the wedding of Beornwulf's eldest daughter Helga, Vadir takes an interest in the second daughter Lilla, to her, Owain, and Bryni's horror (17). He asks her mother Athelis for her hand and Athelis does not deem it wise to refuse, but she puts Vadir off for a year's time in return for Owain's offer to stay for the meantime (18). In winter, Bryni thrusts himself into danger at a boar hunt to get the attention of his father's estranged foster-brother the king (19), and in summer Haegel takes Bryni and Owain to a council of the Jute, Angle, Saxon, and Welsh kings at Cantiisburg, which "coincides" with the landing of Augustine, a Christian missionary from Rome, whom Aethelbert allows into Kent (21). That evening, Vadir reveals to Bryni his expectation of marrying Lilla, Bryni insults him, and they are made to settle the dispute by drawing straws for a feat of daring. Vadir, a daring rider, chooses to try to ride Frey's Horse, the unbroken Teitri, and is killed (22). Owain, finally free to go, returns to the farm where he left Regina eleven years before, but finds her lately gone, and his father's ring with her; heeding the sign she left, he finds her waiting in Viroconium, and tells her they will go to Priscus and Priscilla (23).

Historical backgroundEdit

Battle of Deorham and Kyndylan Edit

The battle in whose aftermath Dawn Wind opens is not named in the text. It is usually known as the Battle of Deorham at Dyrham, South Gloucestershire, 10 kilometres north of Bath. It was recorded only in the 9th century Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, where the defeated British leaders were named as Conmail of Gloucester (Glevum), Farinmail of Bath (Aquae Sulis), and Condidan of Cirencester (Corinium). The latter Sutcliff has revised into Kyndylan of Viroconium (Wroxeter, Shropshire). The name Kyndylan is apparently taken from a roughly contemporary chieftain of Powys, Cynddylan ap Cyndrwyn.

Roman monuments at Viroconium Edit

Two Roman inscriptions at Viroconium are mentioned in the text. They are recorded in The Roman Inscriptions of Britain, Vol. 1 by R.G. Collingwood and R.P. Wright and can be viewed online at the RIB's website.

  • The gravestone of Marcus Petronius of the 14th Legion (RIB 294)
  • Forum dedication to the Emperor Hadrian (RIB 288)

Adaptations Edit

Dawn Wind was adapted for radio in six episodes broadcast by the BBC Home Service from 24 August-28 September 1962. It was adapted by Felix Felton and produced by David Davis.
