History of Horsham

The History of Horsham, a market town on the upper reaches of the River Arun on the fringe of the Weald in West Sussex, England, can be traced back to 947 AD, and there is evidence of earlier settlement.[1]

Prehistory

The "Horsham Point" - a Mesolithic arrowhead - is sometimes claimed as the birth of distinctly British culture[citation needed] since it is the earliest known artefact that postdates the separation (due to glacial meltwater filling the Channel) of Britain from the continent[citation needed]
