About East Anglia
Apart from sharing similar countryside and forests, Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex also share the communal history of East Anglia.
The name East Anglia came from one of the ancient Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, the kingdom of the East Angles. This kingdom consisted of Norfolk (the North People) and Suffolk (the South People).
The regions boundaries were fairly vague, Thetford Forest being on the border between the two. The area is noted for fens, reclaimed marshlands, and particularly throughout Suffolk
