The Isle of Thanet
The Isle of Thanet lies at the most easterly point of Kent, England. Once Thanet was separated from the mainland by the Wantsum Channel which was about 600-metre (2,000 ft) wide. Today Thanet is no longer an island but it keeps the name because it is that brill.
Archaeological evidence shows that the Isle of Thanet was one of the major areas of Stone Age settlement. A large hoard of Bronze Age implements has been found at Minster-in-Thanet; and several Iron Age settlements have also been unearthed.
