Stone handaxe
THIS small handaxe is one of the most beautiful in the British Museum. It is made from quartz with attractive amethyst banding, a difficult material from which to make tools because it is extremely hard. The toolmaker would have had to hit with considerable force and accuracy to remove flakes. Such a high degree of difficulty makes the thin, symmetrical shape of this piece a masterpiece of the toolmakers’ art.

Bryher Campsite, Bryher, Scilly Isles, CornwallThe tiny Scilly Isle of Bryher has two distinct faces. To the south and east are calm blue waters filling the narrow, sheltered channel separating the island from its big sister, Tresco; while its north-western shores are a jagged jumble of weather-torn rocks, beaten and broken by the relentless Atlantic waves.

Such polar-opposite characteristics are what make this island such a special place to camp; a different landscape to suit your every mood. Look one way and you'll get sandy-beach bays ideal for sunbathing, swimming, and snorkelling (although the water can be nippy). Look the other way and you'll see prehistoric burial cairns and a heather-covered panorama that will dumbfound you.

A short climb uphill from the boat jetty, Bryher's campsite has impressive open views of the harbour, Hangman Island, and Tresco, yet occupies a sheltered spot between two high hills. Not a site for the fainthearted, it's about simple, back-to-basics camping, complementing its natural environs.
To really see the best of this island, visit in the heat of summer and enjoy your own Crusoe-like isolated island idyll.
