Sussex is a county rich in history waiting to be explored by the local, the visitor and the student alike. This clear and well-informed book introduces the people and the historical events that have made the county what it is today.

Topics covered include: The geography – the South Downs, the open forests and heathlands and the coast. The people – from Neolithic Man to the Prince Regent. The buildings – exquisite Saxon and Norman churches, imposing castle at Arundel and beautiful Bodiam, splendour of Petworth and quiet beauty of Batemans. The communities – popular resorts of Eastbourne and Brighton, idyllic villages and hamlets full of reminders of times long past.
