An administrative county of England that was abolished in 1974, East Suffolk was combined with West Suffolk and Ipswich to form the new county of Suffolk in East Anglia.
Evidence from archaeological sites suggests that people have been living in the region since the Neolithic Age. It was also occupied by the Romans for around 300 years. One of the most important ancient sites in the UK - Sutton Hoo - dates from the 6th century and contained an Anglo-Saxon ship burial and a number of other artefacts that are now on display at the British Museum, in London.
From the Middle Ages, the region's economy was mainly based on building boats, as well as rope and sail making. During the 16th and 17th centuries, East Suffolk also relied on salt making and the wool trade, while a number of mills were also opened, at least one of which was operated by the tides and is still in working order today.
These days, East Suffolk's economy is mainly service-sector based. The Port of Felixstowe is the UK's largest container port, while companies based in the area include Birds Eye frozen foods and OrbisEnergy.
