About This Book

Kent has been the Gateway to Britain since prehistoric man first set foot on our soil, and its people have repelled invaders like Julius Ceasar, the Vikings and William I, while welcoming migrants from countries such as France, Poland, Austria and The Netherlands. In turn, men from Kent played a part in invading and conquering such faraway places as Canada, Australia and the USA, and have left their stamp on the world at large. This volume is a tribute to those who have shaped our society, and the world around us; from the long barrow at Trottescliffe and the Medieval Abbey of St Augustine to the Channel Tunnel and The Turner Contemporary, Bluewater Shopping Centre it is plain to see that the landscape around us is in itself a monument to those who went before.
