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.

South Breazle Holidays, Bratton Clovelly, Okehampton, DevonCome and have an easy Breazle time at this relaxed site surrounded by mid-Devon fields. A great place for first-time campers, South Breazle offers superb facilities and spacious pitches with individual names and separated by pretty flowers.The pitches are looped around the perimeter of a field in a horseshoe shape, within easy reach of the facilities.

Owners Louise and Steve rear cows and a few pigs and sell tasty burgers and sausages in the site shop. They designed the campsite so its nucleus -the field — is open for kids to play cricket and footie, or just run themselves breathless while their parents relax within eyeshot. The track separating the grassy space from the pitches is perfect for cycling around and around before it's time to cool off in the adjacent field's 'fun fountain'.

Camping purists may not love the organised, manicured pitches or the amount of hardstanding and hook-ups here, while the quiet-time at 10pm rule may not appeal to the parry crowd. But if you're a new camper or bringing kids it's the perfect site for getting to grips with this sleeping outdoors malarkey, while exploring the heart of Devon.
