Ælenge in Lawman’s Brut is the site where Hengist and his Saxons treacherously slaughter the Briton nobles.

Lawman, like Wace, does not identify the site with the supposed Cloister of Ambrius or with Mount Ambrius. The stones are brought to a wonderfully flat plain, near Amesbury.

Ælenge may be Allington near Stonehenge as suggested by Blenner-Bassett (Ælenge).
