Many writers have written about the delights of the former kingdom of the South Saxons, its downs, villages, countryside, people and their ways but Visitors' Historic
Britain - West Sussex is the first book to take readers on a tour of discovery of each of the county's historic eras in turn.
Starting with prehistoric Sussex, the book explores West Sussex from west to east, investigating both little-known and well-visited sites that tell the story of its ancestors' past. There are encounters with wild warriors, formidable founders of the county, indefatigable industrialists, excitable eccentrics and the lives of Sussex inhabitants and invaders.
Sussex is a county celebrated by writers, painters, royalty, artists and the millions who have enjoyed its changing coastline and verdant villages. Newman's book provides a unique series of journeys for those who are inquisitive about this quirky and historychanging part of the SouthEast.
