Product description

It is not without reason that Romney Marsh and the adjoining marshes and levels have been nicknamed the Fifth Continent, for it is all new land, created well within historical times. When the Romans came to Britain, the wide wat­ers spread between Hythe in the East and Winchelsea in the West, and ran inland as far as Tenterden and Newen­den. The business of the sea has left its mark on towns and villages that now lie far inland, and the open and flat lands, that have been reclaimed from the sea, have their own special characteristics, resulting from their origin. This book relates how the Fifth Con­tinent was formed and developed, and describes the people and places within it and around it. It can be read either for general interest or as a guide to all the localities within its scope that a visitor is likely to want to explore.
