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.

Eweleaze Farm (Osmington Hill, Osmington, Dorset)
 (голосов: 0)
Eweleaze Farm (Osmington Hill, Osmington, Dorset)Dorset's protected Jurassic coastline is a gloriously undeveloped stretch of hidden bays, beaches, and pristine countryside. Blissfully roadless, the stretch of coast between Durdle Door and Weymouth is best explored along the South West Coast Path. Part-way along this route lies Eweleaze Farm, which, through a combination of fortuitous geography and formidable effort, is one of the most agreeable places to camp in England.The views are one of the many things that make Eweleaze a cut above the average campsite.

They are quite staggering from most pitches: a curve of coast meandering round to Weymouth Harbour, and finishing at the raised lump of land at Portland. And while plenty of sites can boast views, not many can otfer a private beach with direct access.This small but adequate shingle bay with shallow waters is what makes Eweleaze the first choice for carefree family camping. The campsite has eco credentials, too, including canipfire wood donated by a local tree surgeon. But the downside is that the campsite is open only in August. So bag a pitch asap and don't let Eweleaze Farm be the one that got away this summer.
