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.

Porth Joke Campsite,Treago Mill, Crantock, Newquay, Cornwall
Lucky campers who've stayed at Porth Joke Campsite know it's an unspoilt, tucked-away, tiny hideout of a site with a warm and genuine atmosphere. Acquiring a pitch here in midsummer will be a challenge because this place is popular and spots are limited, but you'll understand why.

It's seaside camping at its finest. Not only is Surf City Newquay just four miles away, you've also got Porth Joke Beach, which offers privacy and enviable beauty, on your doorstep.You could lose days watching the curling wrath-filled waves of the Atlantic crash against the mighty Cornish dunes.

The site itself is very basic but comes with good facilities, and the jewel in its crown and the single onsite source of entertainment is a giant sandpit, which you are advised to replenish with the sand from Porth Joke Beach.

If, perchance, you do want to venture out of the seductively comfortable Porth Joke confines, then do so on foot. Within a few miles of the site you'll encounter the beauty of Holywell Bay, the endless sands and roaring surf of Perranporth, and the equally sublime Crantock Beach.
