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.

Sea Barn Farm Camping Park, Fleet, Weymouth, Dorset
 (голосов: 0)
Sea Barn Farm Camping Park, Fleet, Weymouth, DorsetAs you turn off the main road and head for Sea Barn Farm through narrow, mostly single-track country roads, shaded with tall trees on either side, it feels like a pioneering journey of discovery in forgotten Dorset. And then you find this gorgeous little tenters' campsite, neatly contained by a low stone wall, with the most fantastic panorama as a backdrop. The view of Fleet Lagoon, Lyme Bay, and the Jurassic Coast can be seen from many of the pitches; others have countryside views and some have no view at all, as pitches are arranged across a sequence of small fieldlets with differing outlooks.

In truth, the low-key, undiscovered ambience at Sea Barn Farm is something of an illusion. The site's actually part of a larger operation that includes the adjacent campsite and a touring caravan park. Although they're separate from Sea Barn Farm, guests can use their facilities, which include an outdoor heated swimming pool and a bar and clubhouse. So, it's the best of both worlds at Sea Barn Farm - quiet and peaceful camping, with extra entertainment just next door.
