In the South East of England, the small county of East Sussex is found. Kent, West Sussex and Surrey are all within the boundaries of this county. In the south, the county is bounded by the English Channel. The historic county of Sussex used to be one. Today, it is divided into two – the East and the West Sussex with its roots anchored to the ancient kingdom of the South of Saxons. It was in the 5th century when the kingdom established itself in the area.
A great number of archaeological remains were found in the area especially in the upper part of the county. Its coastal areas have also opened its doors to several invaders including the Romans and later on the Normans. All of these invaders have attempted to build their community in the area until it has grown to the county that it is today.
Its early industries are characterized by fishing, wool trade, and iron making. However, when its economy declines, it also lost all these industries that used to parade the land. In the past, the area of Sussex is traditionally divided into rapes which mean six different sub-divisions. Since the 12th century, the three rapes in the east as well as the three rapes in the west have both divided into quarter sessions which in the modern times refer to as the East and West Sussex respectively.
The 1865 Parliament has made the division legally administrative counties. East Sussex is made up of three self-administered county boroughs namely Brighton, Hastings and Eastbourne. It was recognised as a ceremonial county in 1974.
