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.

Treen Farm Campsite, Treen, St Levan, Penzance, CornwallBeach babes and sun lovers, oil up and grab your flip-flops - Treen Farm's campsite, three miles shy of Land's End, is just a towel's throw from some of England's finest beaches.

During the Second World War, the army commandeered a field belonging to Treen Farm as a communications post; they constructed military buildings on the land, rendering it useless for farming - but perfect for camping. Since then, campers and cows have co-existed at Treen Farm.

The site is fantastically spacious - a field's length away from the cliff-top so it isn't overly exposed, yet you still manage to catch sea glimpses over the hedges to put your location into perspective. Being so high up does mean your shore views are slightly restricted, but you're never too far from an enviable beach.

The nearest is a 10-minute cliff-top walk and rocky scramble away: PednVounder - a tiny, isolated, golden-sanded cove. The difficult position means it's never busy, but it does get cut oft at high tide, so keep an eye out. At low tide, you can walk along the Pedn sands to Green Bay and the more widely known Porthcurno Beach. And if that's not enough sandy shore action, then it's just a 10-minute drive to Sennen on the north coast, where you'll find Whitesands Bay — a legendary Cornish surfing spot.
