As the closest areas of England to the continent, Kent and Sussex have been a route favoured by invaders.
The Romans came this way, as did the English, the Normans and the French.
But the area has also seen its share of civil strife, in medieval baronial conflicts, the Wars of the Roses and Tudor religious uprisings.
Rupert Matthews, 'the History Man', presents fifteen guided walks around the battlefields of Kent and Sussex.
He provides an account of events as they unfolded on the ground along with full background and context.
His expertise, descriptive powers and lively enthusiasm bring the drama of history vividly to life.
