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.

Henry's Campsite, Caerthillian Farm, The Lizard, Helston, Cornwall
 (голосов: 0)
Henry's is different. It's the most southerly campsite in mainland Britain and it's been here for donkey's years. It was just a 'normal' campsite until Ron and Jo Lyne took over from Ron's dad Henry. When asked what he's trying to achieve at Henry's, Ron muttered something like 'I want it to be like a garden'. Well, he's certainly achieved that humble dream, but we think he may be underselling it slightly...

Henry's Campsite, Caerthillian Farm, The Lizard, Helston, Cornwall

Ron is obviously an artist at heart, constandy creating new marvels for everyone to enjoy. An inquisitive stroll through the site, peering into all the hidden corners, reveals an enchanting arrangement of other-worldly standing stones, Cornish walls, hand-painted murals, and animated sculptures - including a row of cheeky rooftop gulls. Sub-tropical plants are scattered throughout the site and, garden-like or not, the astounding results of Ron's labours speak for themselves.

The surrounding coastal landscape can't have failed to inspire Henry's evolution over the years. The most iconic chunk of coastal scenery hereabouts is Kynance Cove.just a 20-minute walk from the site. Even nearer, but not nearly so beautiful, is Lizard Point.

The unisex ablution arrangements, alien-looking plants hugging an alfresco washing-up sink, and former shipping-container loo block may not be to everyone's taste, but are part and parcel of this unique and personal'garden'. It's Henry's eccentricity - in equal measure to the stunning surroundings - that entices campers back each year.
