Geographical location in the southeast of England has resulted in Kent being impacted throughout history by Britain's nearest neighbours in Continental Europe, be that influence social, cultural, political, religious or military. Roman conquerors and Christian missionaries landed first in Kent, and Dover Castle has long been considered the Key to England. In prehistory, humans walked to Kent; the ice sheet did not encroach during the last glacial period; and the climate today is generally mild. Proximity to the growing metropolis of London boosted demand for the harvested crops, hops, fruits and flowers of Kent, giving rise to its moniker of the Garden of England.
