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.

Karrageen Caravan and Camping Park, Bolberry, Malborough, Kingsbridge, Devon
 (голосов: 0)
Karrageen Caravan and Camping Park, Bolberry, Malborough, Kingsbridge, DevonKarrageen is all about giving its lucky occupants plenty of room to breathe, think, play, and relax. There's no tangle of guy ropes here, and there's even room for those multi-bedroom monstrosities that can take up a good few pitches on their own.

You'll find nothing fancy, nothing flash, and nothing gimmicky:just a simple, very well-maintained and nicely landscaped site in an ever-so-lovely location — with space to spare.

The immediate locality of Karrageen is peaceful and only accessed along a tortuous narrow lane leading down (eventually) to the sea at the lost world of Hope Cove and its little village. After wandering through the sleepy rows of fishermen's cottages you'll think it eminently possible that this is still a place for clandestine meetings of pirates and smugglers - such is the sense of detachment and timelessness in the air.

There are a couple of pubs in the village that serve food, but should lethargy - or the desire not to leave this lovely site — rob the legs of movement, there are decent meals available courtesy of Karrageen's amiable cooking proprietor.
