VISITOR'S HISTORIC BRITAIN: West Sussex Stone Age

KEVIN NEWMAN    Book Number: 90684    Product format: Paperback

Sussex-born tour guide, teacher, history consultant and journalist Kevin Newman regularly escapes up on the South Downs on walks much shorter than Belloc managed. Many writers have written about the delights of the former kingdom of the South Saxons, its Downs, villages, countryside, people and their ways, but this is the first book to take readers on a tour of discovery of each of the county's historic eras in turn. It looks at Ancient, Roman, Saxon, Viking, Norman, Medieval, Tudor and Second Iron Age, Stuart, Civil War and Restoration, Georgian, Napoleonic and Regency, Industrial, Victorian, Resort and Railway Era, Edwardian and First World War, Interwar, Art Deco/Modernist and Second World War, Post and Cold War Sussex. Points of interest like Church Norton, Chichester Cathedral, Arundel Castle, Goodwood, all houses and points of interest and where to lunch are marked in bold text in a book celebrating the writers, painters, royalty, artists and millions who have enjoyed Sussex's changing coastline and verdant villages. Hundreds of black and white photos, line art and maps. A super and quirky slice of history in one heavyweight softback handbook, 198pp, 15.5cm x 23cm.
