The South East of England includes the counties of Kent, Surrey, West Sussex and East Sussex. Its
proximity to the continent has dictated its history. Roman remains dot the coastal area,
and many roads, including the main A2 London to Dover road, follow the arrow-straight
tracks laid by the legionaries. In 597AD Augustine established a monastery in Kent, at
Canterbury. This is the home of the Head of the Church of England, the Archbishop of Canterbury.
