History[edit] Main article: History of Sussex Although the name Sussex, derived from the Old English
Old English
'Sūþsēaxe' ('South Saxons'), is from the Saxon period between AD 477 to 1066, the history of human habitation in Sussex
Sussex
goes back to the Old Stone Age.[2] The oldest hominin remains known in Britain were found at Eartham Pit, Boxgrove.[3][4] Sussex
Sussex
has been occupied since those times and has succumbed to various invasions and migrations throughout its long history.[2] Prehistoric monuments include the Devil's Jumps, a group of Bronze Age burial mounds, and the Iron Age Cissbury Ring and Chanctonbury Ring
Chanctonbury Ring
hill forts on the South Downs. The Roman period saw the building of Fishbourne Roman Palace
Fishbourne Roman Palace
and rural villas such as Bignor Roman Villa
Bignor Roman Villa
together with a network of roads including Stane Street, the Chichester
Chichester
to Silchester Way and the Sussex
Sussex
Greensand Way. The Romans used the Weald
Weald
for iron production on an industrial scale.[5] The foundation of the Kingdom of Sussex
Kingdom of Sussex
is recorded by the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle for the year AD 477; it says that Ælle arrived at a place called Cymenshore
Cymenshore
in three ships with his three sons and killed or put to flight the local inhabitants. The foundation story is regarded as somewhat of a myth by most historians, although the archaeology suggests that Saxons did start to settle in the area in the late 5th century.[6][7] The Kingdom of Sussex
Kingdom of Sussex
was absorbed into Wessex
Wessex
as an earldom and became the county of Sussex. With its origins in the kingdom of Sussex, the later county of Sussex was traditionally divided into six units known as rapes. By the 16th century, the three western rapes were grouped together informally, having their own separate Quarter Sessions. These were administered by a separate county council from 1888, the county of Sussex
Sussex
being divided for administrative purposes into the administrative counties of East and West Sussex. In 1974, West Sussex
Sussex
was made a single ceremonial county with the coming into force of the Local Government Act 1972. At the same time a large part of the eastern rape of Lewes (the Mid Sussex
Mid Sussex
district which includes the towns of Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill
Burgess Hill
and East Grinstead) was transferred into West Sussex. Provision for paupers[edit] Until 1834 provision for the poor and destitute in West Sussex
Sussex
was made at parish level. From 1835 until 1948 eleven Poor Law Unions, each catering for several parishes, took on the job.[8] Settlements[edit] See also: List of places in West Sussex

is the largest in the county with an estimated population of 106,600.[9] The coastal settlement of Worthing
Worthing
closely follows with a population of 104,600.[9] The seaside resort of Bognor Regis

and market town Horsham are both large towns. Chichester, the county town, has a cathedral and city status, and is situated not far from the border with Hampshire. Other conurbations of a similar size are Burgess Hill, East Grinstead and Haywards Heath

West Sussex
Sussex
is bordered by Hampshire
Hampshire
to the west, Surrey
Surrey
to the north and East Sussex
East Sussex
to the east. The English Channel
English Channel
lies to the south. The area has been formed from Upper Jurassic and Lower Cretaceous
Lower Cretaceous
rock strata, part of the Weald–Artois Anticline. The eastern part of this ridge, the Weald
Weald
of Kent, Sussex
Sussex
and Surrey
Surrey
has been greatly eroded, with the chalk surface removed to expose older Lower Cretaceous
Lower Cretaceous
rocks of the Wealden Group.[10] In West Sussex
Sussex
the exposed rock becomes older towards the north of the county with Lower Greensand ridges along the border with Surrey
Surrey
including the highest point of the county at Blackdown. Erosion of softer sand and clay strata has hollowed out the basin of the Weald
Weald
leaving a north facing scarp slope of the chalk which runs east and west across the whole county, broken only by the valleys of the River Arun
Arun
and River Adur.[11] In addition to these two rivers which drain most of the county a winterbourne, the River Lavant, flows intermittently from springs on the dip slope of the chalk downs north of Chichester.[12] The county makes up 1.52% of the total land of England, making it the 30th largest county in the country.[13] See also: List of hills of West Sussex

Climate[edit] West Sussex
Sussex
is officially the sunniest county in the United Kingdom according to Met Office
Met Office
records over 29 years with an average 1902 hours per year.[15] Sunshine totals are highest near the coast with Bognor Regis
Bognor Regis
often having the highest in mainland England, including a total of 2237 hours in 1990. Mean annual temperature for southern coastal counties is around 11 °C. The coldest month, January, has mean daily minimum temperatures of around 3 °C near the coast and lower inland. July tends to be the warmest month when mean daily maxima tend to be around 20 °C. A maximum temperature of 35.4 °C occurred at North Heath, Pulborough
Pulborough
on 26 June 1976. Coastal high temperatures are often moderated by cooler sea breezes.[16] Monthly rainfall tends to be highest in autumn and early winter and lowest in the summer months, with July often being the driest month. There is less rainfall from summer convective showers and thunderstorms than in inland areas. The county can suffer both from localised flooding caused by heavy rainfall and from water shortages caused by prolonged periods of below average rainfall. Winter rainfall is needed to recharge the chalk aquifers from which much of the water supply is drawn.[16] Land economy[edit] West Sussex
Sussex
developed distinctive land uses along with its neighbours in the weald. The Landrace

cattle transformed into Sussex
Sussex
cattle and Sussex

chickens emerged about the time of the Roman conquest.[17] Some of the earliest evidence of horses in Britain has been found at Boxgrove, dated to 500,000 BC. Viticulture is a part of the economy, with wineries producing mainly sparkling wine of varied quality.[18] Communications and transport[edit] The M23 Motorway runs from London
London
to the south of Crawley. The A23 and A24 roads run from London
London
to Brighton
Brighton
and Worthing
Worthing
respectively with the A29 a little further west ending in Bognor Regis. Other major roads are the A272 which runs east to west through the middle of the county and the A27 which does the same but closer to the coast. The A259 is a local alternate route to the A27 in the eastern coastal strip. Gatwick Airport, which handled over 33 million passengers and had over 250,000 aircraft movements in 2011, is located within the borders of Crawley, and is the second largest airport in the United Kingdom. There is also a considerably smaller local airport at Shoreham and a grass airfield handling light aircraft and helicopters at Goodwood. There are three main railway routes: the Brighton
Brighton
Main Line, the Arun Valley Line and the West Coastway Line. The Portsmouth Direct Line serves and occasionally enters the westernmost part of West Sussex, although it has no railway stations in the county. National politics[edit] See also: List of Parliamentary constituencies in West Sussex Since the 2015 general election, West Sussex
Sussex
has been represented entirely by Conservative MPs.
