  • Kent: one of the few English counties to still  use a name with roots in the ancient pre-Roman  


  • languages that once rang out across this  island. The word Kent is derived from Kantos,  


  • which means 'border', a fitting name forplace that's home to Dover Castle, a medieval  


  • fortress rising imperiously from the crest of  a grand hill, staring watchfully out to sea.


  • Dover Castle sits looking out to sea, effectively  guarding the narrowest part of the channel.  


  • Much of the castle that we can see today dates  from the 1180s to the early 1200s but the site  


  • has been occupied for much, much longer than  that as we've seen at so many of our sites. In

  • some places, one has to look hard or to dig down  to find that deeper historical story but at Dover  


  • it's right here. In some cases that deeper story  is standing literally right in front of you,  


  • four stories high. This is a remarkable  lighthouse, a Pharos, and it dates to the

  • first half of the second century AD. It appears  to have still been use as a lighthouse in the  


  • 12th century, around 1000 years after it was  first built by the Romans. And the church of St  


  • Mary in Castro which lies directly alongsidethat might have been founded as early as the  


  • mid 7th century but the existing building, while  heavily restored, dates from around about 1000 AD.

  • But it's not all about looking into the deep  past. Dover Castle has always played a part  


  • in the defence of the realm and it played a part  in both world wars. The headland here is riddled  


  • with tunnels, many of them first dug during the  Napoleonic wars and these were used as a base  


  • from which to plan and execute various  operations including Operation Dynamo,  


  • the evacuation of troops from Dunkirk.

  • importance to anyone looking to reign over  England and defend their land from the south.  


  • The continent, filled with rulers who've often  viewed England as a prize worth fighting for,  


  • lies less than 21 miles away over the water.


  • More than 700 years ago, Dover Castle was  described as the Key of England and of course  


  • this place has been a key fortification throughout  its history. Taken together, the white cliffs and  


  • the castle have for a long time been a symbol, a  powerful symbol, of England, indeed of Britain.  


  • Certainly this is absolutely true during the  second world war. But in the 19th century Dover  


  • was once described as "historic, cliff-guardedcastle-crowned Dover" which I think is a beautiful  


  • way to look at this place. The channel that  the castle looks out on is undoubtedly a  


  • barrier but it also has to be seen very much as  a highway. It's always been used this way and

  • it still is today. As much as it separates, it's  allowed people to communicate and for as long as  


  • Britain has been separate from the continent  there's always been people plying the waters here  


  • especially as its narrowest point, and of course  that's still very much the case today when goods  


  • and people cross the water. If Pendennis feels  like it has a story of leave taking then Dover

  • and the cliffs would be the first thing they  saw as they came back to England from various  


  • conflicts and travels. But of course for others  the castle is all about defence and defiance.


  • The seafaring people of England have  blessed us with a rich singing tradition  


  • packed with raucous shanties and sentimental  songs overflowing with longing and loss.  


  • A recurring theme we find is that of bloody  encounters with the supposedly treacherous French.  


  • These songs document clashes with England's  old enemy who'd venture out into the wild  


  • winds of the channel to do battle amongst  the waves. One of the finest of these songs,  


  • sung here for us by Mara Carlyle, is A Ship to  Old England Came. The lyrics tell the tale of

  • an English vessel that encounters a fleet  of French ships in the inky black night.  


  • They wait until sunrise to launch into the frayuncertain if they'll see the sun rise again.
