Visitors' Historic Britain: East Sussex, Brighton & Hove (Kindle)
Stone Age to Cold War
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 is the first series of books to take readers on a tour of discovery of each of the county's historic eras in turn.
Visitors’ Historic Britain: East Sussex, Brighton & Hove follows its West Sussex predecessor and starts with the prehistoric era. We travel through the ages and explore East Sussex through a series of tours, investigating both little-known and well-visited sites that tell the story of our ancestors' past. We encounter wild warriors, formidable founders of the county, indefatigable industrialists, excitable eccentrics and investigate the lives of both Sussex invaders and inhabitants.
Sussex is a country celebrated by writers, painters, royalty, artists and poets. It is enjoyed by the millions who love its charming coastline and verdant villages. Visitors' Historic Britain: East Sussex, Brighton & Hove provides a unique series of journeys for those who are inquisitive about this quirky and history-changing part of the South-East.

If you're a resident of East Sussex, Brighton or Hove, this superb book will be compuolsoty reading for you; otherwise, it's a shining example of what can be written and discovered about the places we inhabit in the British Isles.Books Monthly
