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.

Dennis Cove Camping, Dennis Lane, Padstow, CornwallDennis Cove Camping occupies a lovely spot within easy boat-watching proximity of the Camel Estuary, at Cornwall's famous Padstow. Comprising just two simple grass fields - an upper overflow that opens during the busy school holidays, and a sheltered lower field available throughout the season - this well cared-for campsite is all about simple, old-fashioned camping.

The Camel Trail runs adjacent to the site, and any stretch of its incredibly scenic 17 miles makes for a pleasant day of easy walking or cycling. The route follows the estuary and continues inland alongside the River Camel to Poley's Bridge.

But you don't have to stretch your legs much during your relaxing stay at Dennis Cove, for charming Padstow is only a 10-minute walk away. At the heart of this fishing port is its busy harbour, buzzy with activity year-round as fishermen bring in the catch. Fresh off the boat and into the pan, the fish is dished out to hungry tourists at many a fine restaurant here, including those owned by celebrity chef Rick Stein, who's helped transform the tiny town into Cornwall's gastronomic capital.
