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.

Roadford Lake Campsite, Okehampton, Devon
 (голосов: 0)
Calling all water babies — Roadford Lake Campsite is, as the name suggests, situated right on the shore of a lake stretching across 730 acres of mid Devon. There are boatloads of opportunities here for campers to immerse themselves in outdoor activities - either on the water in kayaks, canoes, dinghies, and on water skis or around the water's edge on walks, cycle routes, and bridleways. Craft and equipment can be hired or visitors are welcome to bring their own; and private tuition and 'taster' courses are on offer at the friendly onsite centre.

The atmosphere at Roadford is exuberant, as wetsuit-clad campers and visitors stroll around the place with happy smiles on their faces having spent a few hours developing their sea legs on the lake, or sit relaxing by the 1H5Q after a day moseying around this quiet quarter of Devon.

The site has many pitches, but they're spread across a number of small fields broken up by tall hedges to give them a more intimate feel.The field next to the Like is the one to aim for, right on the shore and offering a fantastic panorama across the water, its boats waiting for you to climb aboard.

COOL FACTOR Camping on the shore of a sailing lake. WHO'S IN? Tents, campervans, caravans, dogs (on leads), groups (discounted rates available) - yes.

ON SITE Three fields, plus an overflow. Approx. 100 pitches, 10 hook-ups (3 more to come), 9 hardstanding. Five portaloos behind the updated facilities block (with hot showers, loos, sinks, and hairdryer) plus disabled loo/shower room. A new block built in spring 2011 offers more loos and showers (6W, 6M). There are 2 washing-up sinks and 2 covered areas with picnic benches and BBQ. Hire water craft or sign up for sailing lessons and water-skiing at the onsite office. No campfires, but BBQs off the ground allowed.
