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.

Get ready for a change of pace in the New Forest, where horses and all manner of other woodland wildlife rule, but if you're very good, they might just agree to put you up for a few nights. Why not practice living harmoniously alongside these creatures at Roundhill, one of Forest Holidays' most outstanding campsites? Once an airfield, this expanse of heathland is at the forest's centre, and the sheltered pockets of land created by its numerous trees and shrubs provide the perfect pitching space.

The rules are simple - find yourself a spot six metres from your nearest neighbours and it's yours. The lakeside area near reception and the adjacent pine woods are popular with regulars. Animals have grazing rights here, so expect to see horses, donkeys, cows, and even pigs wandering freely around the campsite. For the most part, they keep their distance, but keep your food locked away. The donkeys are highly skilled at unzipping tents, and rumour has it they can even open ring-pulls on cans. So, make like a woodland elf in this heathered heaven and be at one with the free-roaming animals... Wait, has that donkey got one of your beers?
