Story of Kent
This book tells the amazing story of Kent from earliest times to the modern day. Some of the pivotal moments in the Garden of England's history are recalled, including invasions from Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, and Normans. It has seen the Black Death, the Peasants' Revolt, the Swing Riots, and, more recently, audacious escapades by Suffragettes in the battle for Votes for Women. The story is brought right up to date with the challenges faced by traditional industries and the transformation of cross-Channel travel. The resilient people of Kent have taken it all in their stride and this story encompasses how they lived, worked, and played through hundreds of years of colorful history.
