The mainly rural county of Dorset is situated on the English Channel coastline of South West England, with about three quarters of this coastline being a World Heritage Site and more than half the county designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Dorset's amazing history dates back to around 8000BC and continues with the Celts, Romans, Saxons, and Normans. The county has also seen the Black Death, smuggling, revolutions and beach landing excercises, but since World War II it has become a popular tourist destination thanks in part to King George III's frequent visits to the area.
