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.

Run by a gregarious environmentalist and professional photographer, Stubcroft Farm is a sustainable lambing farm set in 50 acres close to the beautiful coastline ofWest Wittering.The campsite sits next to a handsome red-brick farmhouse, which, with its old pumps and nearby beehives, gives the place a real whiff of 'olde' England.

Stubcroft Farm, Stubcroft Lane, East Wittering, Chichester, West Sussex

Stubcroft is proudly green in approach, with its use of fair trade and organic products, as well as environmentally friendly loos. The 90 pitches are pretty compact, having been bordered with specially planted hedges and a wealth of trees to provide privacy and shelter from those landlubbing sea winds. However, on a busy summer weekend you'll be close quartered with your fellow campers, as the place is extremely popular. You'll soon see why; the sky is huge here, and there's an immediately calming effect when you look out across the wild paddock and beyond to the distant smudge of Chichester on one side and the sparkling sea on the other.

Kids will be able to run free (thanks to the site's secluded lane and surrounding fields) while you busy yourself buying home-made burgers from the shop and setting up your barbie. You may even find yourself helping owner Simon with the extraction of honey, or staying during one of the farm's organised vintage-tractor rallies. April is a great time to visit, as there are newborn lambs to bottle-feed; and bring your binoculars - you might just spot some of the deer or 72 species of birds drawn to the area's secluded tranquillity.
