Sussex through the years

3rd February 1995 at 00:00
The castle complex at Lewes, county town of Sussex, provides insights into the archaeology and history of the area. The imposing castle was built soon after the Norman Conquest and has 12th and 13th century additions. Barbican House, adjacent to it, is a Tudor town house and houses the Museum of Sussex Archaeology, which charts the history of Sussex man. A scale model of 1870s Lewes forms the centrepiece of a 25-minute audio-visual presentation. Ten minutes' walk away is Anne of Cleves House, a 16th-century timber-framed Wealden hall house with 17th and 18th-century furnishings. Details: Education officer. Tel: 01273 474379.
