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.
